HC Deb 09 April 1952 vol 498 c242W
Mr. Baker White

asked the Secretary of State for War the nature of the weapons of Czech manufacture captured by Her Majesty's forces in Korea; and what were the dates of manufacture.

Mr. Head

It is not possible to say which national contingent or unit captured any particular weapon in Korea. I am informed that the United Nations forces have captured small quantities of the following weapons of Czech manufacture: three types of 7.92 mm. machine guns, two types of 7.92 mm. rifle, machine carbines and a 7.62 mm. pistol. Except for the light machine gun ZB26, which was manufactured in 1937, I have no information about the dates of manufacture of these captured weapons, but all were designed before or during the 1939–45 War.
