Default Junior Compressor

I am talking to a small target group, I guess as this applies to (I assume?) British carriers only. I have this grease gun (see picture) and I assume it is the junior compressor as it is described in various publications. Does anybody know or can direct me to good reference pictures. It has no brand name, but does have Brit. Patt. plus numbers, and Tecalamite on the back of the chuck. THe tube and cap are steel while the pump end and lever etc are brass / gunmetal.
My post was prompted by Kevin Powles on fb. He was asking about the Canadian grease gun

American designed 'Alamite' products were sold as 'Tecalamite' in the UK so I would guess that the equivalent Alemite gun would be supplied in Canada. Presumably other makes were available and probably substituted in both the UK and Canada as production and shortages ebbed and flowed.
