    Just to add the case was made by E.W.Bliss of Brooklyn,New York,in June 1916 ,has been scleroscoped (a type of x-ray) ,S with a punched dot once and low temperature annealed once, A with a punched dot.GRY I believe is Great Western Railway workshops where the case was reconditioned

    That's a fantastic job, It has inspired me to have a go at one I have. The cordite looks the part and it's all been finished off really well, thanks for showing it.
