This is a topic I know Mike was looking into a while back.

Although not directly a part of a carbine I'm sure we can join the dots and work out this is one way they would have been supplied to troops.

As a background I did some reaserch into a marking on one of my carbines, that I thought may have been linked to a unit that operated in the Pacific during WW2, this unit was made up of Kiwi and Ausi soldiers.

The unit was known as Z special and was a special ops unit.

In one of the books on them they mention a storepedo, I have included a photo of them recovering a storepedo and a run down on them from the same book.

Has anyone seen one before, or does anyone have any further stories to tell about them?

Also I have included a picture from the same book (silent feet) which shows members of Z special training indigenous people to fight, with m1's.
