Unknown Soldiers

The makers/manufacturers of these oilers remain unknown. All of the Mk IV (brass) oilers are of rough construction, with none of the fine finish or smooth bodies seen on WWI (1914-1919) era oilers. While all have some identifying manufacturer’s mark, most are not Broad Arrow marked.
