    The first job for the cartridge case factory was refurbishing old 18Pr cases. New MC cases were made in 1927 and 28. The first MF headstamped cases were made in 1929. I have Mk 1 and 11 cases from UK and Canada that are overstamped by MC . Finsbury in SA used the same MC on artillery cases from 1942.

    Ron,

    You may not be aware, but the Australian 18Pr cases were made on equipment from the National Cartridge Factory, Waterford, Ireland, that was sold post war to the Australian Government at scrap prices. http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/thread...l=1#post258395
