Three Vickers hose connectors.

One marked MA, without spring, and a rough cast top.

Of the other two, one has a serrated ring around the base of the barb.

I know the MA part is Lithgow. Any comments on the others please?

Yes, Mike is correct. These look like the ones from the great auction battle between two forum members last month (went through two bags of popcorn)!

The two shiny ones are IMA reproductions, the third one is a collection of pieces and I think was incomplete. The piece marked MA is Australian WW2 Vickers 303 MG Brass Condensor Hose Fitting Part | eBay
and I think some of the other parts were reproduction parts.

LOL the IMA repops don't fit either a 1942 Lithgow or 1918 Erith.

The IMA reproduction fits on my 42 Lithgow. It was quite a fight to get it on, but once it was on it worked / still works fine. Getting it on was such a fight I have never taken it off.
