Can anyone identify the piece in the picture? Is has been flattended (by a tractor). It has the same diameter as a Lewis gun drum, but I could not find a picture on the web that looks like it. Curious to know what it is.
Interests:British military Small Arms and ammunition.

I don't think it is from a Lewis magazine. Even the types with the relatively smooth top like the No.4 Mark I were not completely flat. Also, the folded rim does not look like it was originally the side of the magazine and there are no sign of the rivets between the crennelations.
