Here is an interesting and rarely seen British pam-
phlet. It is not a fancy printing job and the paper
quality is rather poor. The book is only six pages of
text with a soft paper cover.
On British manuals if you look at the last page you will
see the printed quantity listed before the date of
printing. From the information printed on the last page
of this pamphlet we find that the total printed was only
550 copies. The Print date was "10/40" (October,
1940), by "H&S Ltd." This printing took place during
the later part of the Battle of Britain.
The first British Small Arms Training Manual (Vol-
ume I, Pamphlet No. 21) on the Thompson, was
authorized by the War Office on July 3, 1940, but was
COVER OF THE PAMPHLET.
