Response to Addendum II - Light weapons

 

I have seen a copy of Easterly's book, "The Belgian Rattlesnake", which has a chapter on the Dutch Lewis guns. In 1918-19 BSA developed a version of the Lewis which looked quite modern, and offered it to the Dutch Army, who adopted the cooling-jacketed version instead as the M20. In 1937 BSA offered an Improved Model Lewis in 7.92mm x 57 with a BREN-type box magazine and carrying handle, also minus cooling jacket (much lighter) and we could assume for our scenario that the Dutch adopted either or both of these developments for production in place of the WW I version.
