WW2 British Army 2" Folding Mortar Cleaning Brush Wood & Brass. Marked C.N. 65191 Addis 1945 This brush is about two feet long, and as such would be far too long to be carried easily by the operator in battle, therefore it folds down to fit in the spares case, with the head unscrewing and the shaft folding in half. The brush head itself has a wire bristles at the end and stiff horsehair bristles for the remainder. An iron loop is provided on the opposite end of the shaft: A cleanng sponge can be pushed through this loop and then used to sponge out the barrel. The wooden shaft is marked with the brush type, date of manufacture and stores codes stamped into the wood: Great original piece. No major damage, a few dints and marks commensurate with age. Please see all photos as these form part of the description
This exceptional item will make a great display piece for nautical decor.
