Databases: makers, inspectors and unit markings
This is a database of makers (bayonet, pistol, barrels etc), inspectors (armourers and officers).
It is mainly military makers so far, I might add civlians later.
There is also database of unit markings and their interpretation.
This is a bit thin so far, but will be updated as fast as I can.
The search function is very general, you can search on signatures,unit markings and names etc.
All unit markings can be written with or without "dots", e.g. "M.C. No 12" or "MC No 12". Please search for both alternatives.
Please submitt markings, either by mail , the contact form or even Facebook. If you have a picture, even better !
