Got Yah......

No there wasn't a belt fed bren, but a few were made in Canada, in .22 caliber, for use on indoor ranges, for training in winter.

By 1944. the John Inglis factory here in Toronto was producing 60 percent of the bren guns, world wide. Inglis had made stoves and refrigerators, before the war. They also made " The training Sgts nightmare " the Sten gun .

Since there hasn't been any activity her for two weeks, I will ask this question:

What was the first Australian ship to be commissioned after the introduction of the Australian white ensign?

Is it not the only RAN vessel named after a non commissioned sailor?

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
