Default Bren Machine gun mount.

I found a Machine gun mount being used as a range satey flag holder on the Weekend at Galiano Island.Our club Western Command was having its range weekend and campout .when My 15yr old son went to help load some clay pigions.while having a rest he was leaning against the mount and then had a look at it realizing what it was he ran into the clubhouse to have me look.along wth 3 of the Members from the club that are fixing up their Carriers.I negotiated for it and won out .The mount had been in use as a holder for approx 40yrs at the range.
The carrier it came off was hauled away for scrap 40 yrs ago
good to educate the youth on parts that we need.
