The Welgun was designed by the SOE workshop in Welwyn Garden City, from which the weapon recieved its name. The submachine gun was first developed for use by SOE undercover agents but then made for use by airborne troops. The Welgun featured an unusual bolt, attached to the recoil spring around the barrel, which, with a stock that folded across the top of the reciever, allowed the submachine gun to be extremely compact. The weapon performed successfully in trials in early 1943, but was never put into production. There is considerable doubt that the Welgun was ever used in the field, but the author considers this gun to look cool as hell so it's included.
