The AKU-94 is a bullpup conversion kit (built and originally sold as a kit by K-VAR) for the AK type rifle, Both the European style AKs (like the Romanian AKs or Egyptian Maadis) and the Chinese style of AK rifle (Type 56) can fit into the kit. In the Mid-2000s, KVAR stopped making and selling the AKU-94 conversion kit. All remaining kits were purchased by Century Arms International, and subsequently used to 'spruce up' AK rifles with a futuristic bullpup look. Currently various imported AK rifles (mostly WASRs) with kit installed, is sold by Century Arms International. This bullpup configuration retains the standard barrel length but the design makes the AK rifle more compact making it more suitable for close quarters battle.

Postscript (Feb 2014): A relative - Margaret Cooper Smith - visited Lewis's grave in Wimereux in 2005 and left an Aussie flag. Lewis was her great-uncle, her maternal grandmother's brother. She said "My maternal grandmother was Rachel Susan May Cranley (nee Spratt) who died in 1962 aged 72 years. I was 12 years old. I remember my Nanna well and I remember asking her about the family tree back then but I was told that I didn't need to know anything about that as there was nothing to tell! I realised that she had had a hard life. I do not know where Lewis's medals are. My aunt Gwennie would have had them but she died in Feb 2000."

Lewis is also commemorated on a War Memorial at Richmond, Queensland (where his name is spelt wrongly as "Pratt". Poor Lewis!.

Temporary trenches were also built. When a major attack was planned, assembly trenches would be dug near the front trench. These were used to provide a sheltered place for the waves of attacking troops who would follow the first waves leaving from the front trench. "Saps" were temporary, unmanned, often dead-end utility trenches dug out into no-man's land. They fulfilled a variety of purposes, such as connecting the front trench to a listening post close to the enemy wire or providing an advance "jumping-off" line for a surprise attack. When one side's front line bulged towards the opposition, a salient was formed. The concave trench line facing the salient was called a "re-entrant." Large salients were perilous for their occupants because they could be assailed from three sides.

That's approx. 30 men per platoon. I could be off on headcount by 1 or 2.

Firepower by platoon above:
Scouts -- M-1 Girand 30 cal rifles, 1 ea. 30 cal machine gun per jeep; Section leader was assigned a 30 cal carbine
Tanks -- 76mm Howitzer, 50 cal machine gun, 30 cal machine gun; All carried 45 cal Colt 1911 semiauto pistols
Rifle Squad, 30 cal machine gun, 1 ea. 30 BAR (auto rifle), M-1 Girand 30 cal rifles, Section leader carried a 30 cal carbine
Mortar Squad, 81mm mortar, M-1 Girand 30 cal rifles

I don't remember if the Platoon Leader and Platoon Sergeant each had their own jeeps, but I think they did.

Headquarters Platoon included: Cooks, Mechanics, Quartermaster (weapons/munitions/clothes).

Co. Comdr, Exec Off., 1st Sgt, Platoon Ldrs and Sgts not included above.

When the 8th Recon Co., merged into the 3rd Rcn Squad, 8th Cav, we didn't change any organization, equipment, weaponry, or anything that I can remember. We still seemed to operate independently, although I'm sure the Company Commander and his Lts. took orders from the Squadron Comdr.
