    The complete kit reference is L26A1 or L26A2. The L26A2 Kit differs from the L26A1 in that the Initiator Flash L3A3 has been replaced by the Initiator Flash L3A4

    Cheers,

    S.

    I took part in the scrapping of hundreds of these in the early 1980s. They were deemed surplus to requirement.
    Any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts has been dealt with accordingly by eod personel

    (Note to self - NEVER remove the tripwire spool from container. Ever. Again.)
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
