GALE & POLDEN, Aldershot, c.1940

An original WW2 Thompson Submachine Gun handbook, published c.1940. Although undated, it was certainly published during WW2 and before the revised edition of 1942, which had slightly different photographs. The book is a detailed guide to the handling and maintenance of the 'Tommy Gun' as used by the allied armies during WW2. Full of fascinating information and fully illustrated with great photos of the Thompson and its mechanism, this book will tell you all you need to know about the workings and use of the Thompson Submachine gun.
