Something for the evening

So in here for a swift half;
Note the time lapse and then around the corner to have a shufti;
The usual stuff on display but tonights lecture was different;
Dutch Indonesian Service revolvers, a few on the table;
Looked dated but when the lecture went on it was plain to see why;
The usual high quality lecture ensued which very neatly alinged with an earlier one about the Vickers Lugers;
Timeline explained along with examples of what was in service at those times;
Various plates (much later) used to explain contract orders and arrangements;
The very anaemic Blck Powder loads which survived in service possibly until the mid 1960's were explained.
There was obviously a lot more but I really shouldnt steal someones lecture notes!
