I would like to share this pic with you. It is from the eighties! Dutch National Reserve or Dad’s Army. Maybe others have some great historical pics of the past too and like to share. We’ll see what happens.

Interesting barrel nut / shroud in there.

Neat photo. Thanks for sharing.
Blank firing adapter. The ones I’ve seen are closed with 4 tiny holes in.

Have a close look at the fire selector or where it’s used to be. This was probably used as some kind of jig.

There's an interesting number of weapons in those pics.
In the first one, I can see an AR 10 plus 2 UZIs and a Bren Mk2 in the grass.
In the color pic's, besides the UZIs, I see some FALs.
And is it just the pics or do those wood stocks look longer and differently shaped than the ones we are used to seeing from Israel?

No expert but they were different AFAIK. Dutch Military. The LOP is about 1 1/2" longer than the Israeli version.

The wooden stocks in the pics are 5cm longer in comparrison to the usual lenght. Three lenghts where in use. 30cm, 32,5cm and 35cm.

A folder is in between 30 and 32,5. A Dutch airforce stock is 32,5cm. AS For Dutch Marines and ARS For regular army and airforce.

First the Dutch used Enfield slings . These where replaced later .

Good information, thanks!
Do you know if they were old WW2 British slings, post war British slings, locally made ones or perhaps Belgian ones?

The Sling on the last pic is dated. It is difficult to read but it looks like 1943/4. That woud make it an Enfield I suppose. Eventually these where superseded by grey and green ones. Those where changed to black ones. One size fits all (FAL and Uzi). Dutch Marines used a green one with Garand style clip-ons
