Howdy,


Looking for help identifying this flea market flare. I'm not finding positive identification through the usual looking around. I was leaning towards an outer part of the British Commonwealth such as India or Australia given the crossed flags...... Possibly a later arsenal rework given what seems to be a "44"?
Motor vehicle Wood Bumper Gas Automotive exterior
Wood Trigger Line Gas Gun accessory
Motor vehicle Wood Rim Trunk Audio equipment

Revolver Wood Trigger Air gun Gun barrel
Any help is much appreciated.

Australian, you can tell by the "D / arrow / K" manufactured in 1942. I cannot see the manufacturer in the pictures, maybe markings are buffed out. I would guess it is CSR in an oval, Colonial Sugar Refinery.

Where else is the D^K marking used and how does it translate?
I think I have only ever seen it on Aussie flare guns/Very pistols.

That settles it. I NEED a copy of BA2
Thank you Ward. Between BA and bucket load of notes I thought I might have had things covered.

Question remains though. What is the meaning of DK?

according to the post right above yours it's a brass framed signal pistol.

Yes, it's obviously a CSR Very pistol. So let me put it another way.
If D^D translates to Department of Defence. (proper spelling of defense) then what is the meaning of the letter K in the marking D^K?
