    Looks like a nice piece. I have owned a tremendous number of LB #4 rifles over the years and have yet to see one with the last 4 of the serial number stamped on top of the buttstock behind the...

    Well, glad to hear you are still ok. Hope all goes well for you. Perhaps, given that you are still having pain, shortness of breath, and have a persistently blocked artery, it is for the best you...

    I would assume you are looking for the battle sight for the WWI issue Mk III, and not the earlier rather complicated Mk III rearsight for a 1905? IF the WWI battle sight, do you just need the sight...

    No it should be a Mk II with a sheet metal covered adjustable rearsight on the barrel--the Mk III, not to be confused with the rearsight for the Mk III Ross which was a receiver mounted battle sight....

    I will take some tomorrow and post them. If the current bunch in Ottawa has its way, I am sure the military expenditure will be such that we will be relying on Louisbourg once again for coastal...

    Interesting! Thanks. I see that photo. Odd that the handbook of the Marks of the Canadian Regiments has no such entry. A deeper search indicates it was a short lived group hastily raised as a...

    I considered that but I don't find a record of such a thing. The military units of Quebec and militia tended to have French names, such as the Voltigeurs. It remains a mystery....

    I did consider that, except in the late 1700-early 1800's the last time there had been an independent Queen in England was maybe Queen Anne? After she died in 1714, there were a series of...

    You are correct that these were mostly used by Home Guard units, and also by RCAF as they are sometimes marked with that. I would assume that the RCAF used them to guard bases and such in Canada as...
