#2

They were made to fire between propeller blades, that’s the meaning of “synchronized”.


#3

They are not particularly rare, certainly in the UK.

In the next issue of the Journal I have an article on these and other calibres purchased by Britian prior to Lend Lease.

The headstamps are probably W.R.A. 1941 .303

This headstamp can be very easily found in the UK.
