Thanks for the review Alan. I remember reading Raleigh Trevelyan's book about his experiences as a platoon commander in Anzio 'The Fortress', and the two inch mortar gets mentioned a lot. I might get a set of these to go with the DML Commonwealth Infantry.

Hi Pat,

We were still issued these as Platoon weapons in the 70's. By then they were mainly being used for para flares. Very simple weapon, and I imagine with just a little practice a good gunner could drop a bomb where every he wanted to back then.

I used some with my RM, just need to make a sling. The carrying cases give the troops something else to hold other than a rifle or a spade.

Cheers

Al
