    L Series British 1" Signal Cartridge Case Makers.

    The L series Signal Cartridges have been posted before but the case makers have not been identified. We all know RG but who can identify B&SB, SEIL, ERMAL and CFP ? Also filling factory SQ which is on the base and side of one case. Have I missed any other makers ?

    The following are educated guesses -

    SEIL - Selmore (Engineering) Industries Ltd., 23 & 43 Hollybush Gardens, Bethnal Green Road, London, E2. This company supplied the Admiralty, but what, I've no idea. I've made a few enquiries, but as of to date have been unable to find out anything of this company.
    ERMAL – ERM is Enfield Rolling Mills, Al – is Alumininium. Thus it might be Enfield Rolling Mills (Aluminium) Ltd. The company did exist, whether they made cartridge cases or not, I don’t know.

    CFP - No idea.

    SQ - Horst, what is your source for this being Sanquhar?

    CFP – I’ve no idea.

    Horst,

    Thank you. That was my post, I did qualify it as being an "educated guess". My concern was that educated guesses can become internet fact.

    Regards

    The code for Brocks Fireworks is SQ for Sanquer where the factory is, just down the road from Lockerbie in the Borders.
    Had you not put the ERMAL code I was going to put Eurometaal due to the similarity although it is listed as EMZ.
