similar,the one I wanted is not there.

the only reason I ask is I went to Bedford militaria fair and they had this manual,i asked how much and the reply was £65. I just thought this was a lot for what it was,didnt know what sort of price they were.

baring in mind I picked up a 1941 mk1 bren there for....................£300 bargain

For £65 it must have had something special about it, as the standard small arms training pamphlets used by the Army were of the type on the weapons.org site above, original copies of which are about £10.

If it's blue covered, it's likely to be a post-war reprint or a commercial edition. If it's some bizarre print, then a (very) specialised collector may well pay that for it but it's not worth it if you want the common small arms training manual that the ordinary soldier would have come across.

I know I've paid lots of money for Vickers manuals that others wouldn't consider paying a fiver for but then they've filled a niche in the collection, which is where the £65 may have been targeted.
