I believe both for the Bren. 1st and second (revised) variants. Are they dated? Unaltered early ones are quite desirable amongst the DD Bren fraternity.

Is there one for the Lewis? I have seen a pic of the 2nd one on a Lewis in the Weapons of the ww2 tommy book, although I know it's not 100% accurate.

There is indeed one for the Lewis gun, however it is more like an action cover and only covers the working parts.
