    Hi all, this is my 1st post to forum( thanks for having me),I couldn't resist jumping on this old (ish) topic as I have 2 Belfast committee no5s,which are both dated 12/15,but have different body shapes & different embossed HoU logo on plugs,also different letter castings under lugs (U&O).I believe both grenades are correct,& this concurs with supposition that Belfast committee used various manufacturer's for body castings & base plugs... your thoughts please guys

    Thanks for that.

    From memory that gives us X, M, G,R, U & O.

    Maybe Tom has kept a log but these look like a consistent series of cast markings.
