As E.H. told those pages appear to be from Ammunition for Infantry, part II. It is second of two volumes containing infantry ammunition - small arms ammunition, hand grenades, ammunition for infantry heavy weapons(such as mortars and antitank-guns) etc. Those manuals were introduced in year 1941 and if updated properly have updates until year 1947. Their form is such that they are small folders with removable pages - hence new pages could be easily added and if necessary outdated pages removed.
I am not aware of these manuals being available for download anywhere at this time, but I do have them also as pdf-files. Sent me an email-address with PM and I can email them to you. But be aware that the particular pdf-files are pretty large. Part 2 is about 13.6 MB and Part 1 about 29.6 MB in size.
Also original manuals appear in collector's market here every now and then, but they are rather rare and expensive nowadays.
