Are those British or Australian troops? Also I noticed they all have the metal cup on the front of the stock. Is that a latter addition to the No5?

my no 5 has the metal cup on the foreguard - so does a mate's they are both BSA's separated by a few serial numbers made in 1947 - maybe its the difference between BSA's and Faz's???

the troops in the last pic are definately aussies - one appears to have an American M1 carbine
