    Mills maker C&H

    Dave has a BBC marked No 36 M Mk I with BBC as the maker and C&H as the possible caster on his website. Another C&H has turned up.

    At the weekend I was offered this unfinished body by a man who said 'found on clearing grandad's shed'. It was golden brown with surface rust but has cleaned well.

    The base plug threads are perfect, but the filler hole and the pin holes have not been drilled. There are no cast numbers on the lever space.


    The body is marked C&H SMG. Creasey & Hinton of Dunstable as a possible maker??

    That's a new one for me Tom. Small single contract as a maker after being a body maker for others?
