Kdesign Business Developments is pleased to be associated with the Infantry and SASC Weapons Collection and its web site since Captain (Retired) David J Cuthbertson ( the Proprietor of Kdesign) is a former member of the Small Arms School Corps.


Fortunate to have started his SASC service as the last Instructor on the Vickers MMG to be accepted into the Corps, he was subsequently involved in the trials and introduction of ATGW (Vigilant) before crossing into the 'Small Arms' field just as the GPMG was taking on the sustained-fire role at Hythe.


Other historic memories; being reunited with the Vickers in Oman's Dhofar War in 1974 while seconded to the Sultan's Armed Forces, and the Final Farewell by the British Army to 'the gun' shown on the right.

Kdesign has been providing web sites and e-commerce solutions for societies, businesses and organisations of all types since 1996.
