Thanks to Bill Houston for passing on the following gem – what an appropriate way to celebrate 50 years!
Late last year the Army held an innovation display.
A featured item was Kev Loughrey’s rifle. The original was on show, and has now gone back to its home at the Infantry Museum armoury, as it is kept as a firing weapon.
The museum at Duntroon has on display a very detailed 1:1 model of the rifle. It looks real.
