    eggwelder - I have owned a ROSS Mk.II rifle with PPCLI markings on the butt. I sold it to a PPCLI fellow who was going to mount it in his Legion in Alberta. A friend had one as well, so they are around.

    1939 No 1 MkIII Iraqi stamped with similarly stamped bayonet and oiler.

    I want to get a P14 that is Iraqi stamped to go with it as I've seen P14s with Iraqi markings in videos of gun shops in Baghdad. I've seen old photos and videos of the Iraqi Royal Army with P14s and research of following the money and rifles tells of Iraq getting P14s and SMLEs from Czechoslovakiaicon around in the 30s-50s.

    The current grail guns for me are a nice No. 4 Trials rifle, a Con'd. Mk II, and a Con'd. Mk IV.

    The unattainable grail (at least for now) would be the Turner SMLE. Gotta dream big!

    Well, I have a Trials No. 4 on its way and succeeded in acquiring a ConD. Mk II & a ConD. Mk IV a few months ago, so I find I need to update my post on here! The next top three would be a .22 Short Rifle Patt. 1918, a Parker-Hale N.9, and an L8

    A or B pattern ShtLE trials rifle, in original configuration. Both would be insane to hope for.

    Well it's not actually an Enfield, it's a double barrel Hollis shot gun, with Damascus barrel.
    I suppose you are wondering WHY!, as it sits with my 2x Mk1 No3's, 2 x Mk4 No1*'s and my 2 x Mk5 No1's.
    As it was used to kill (no apologies as I am not politically correct nor will be, as hammer is a hammer, nothing else) 3 Japaneseicon Prisoners of the 200 or so that had escaped from the POW camp In Cowra NSW Australiaicon. The escape happened about 5 am on the 5th August 1945 in the middle of our winter, 4 guards were killed as the Japanese stormed over the fence (they were well prepared as you can see from web sites, if your interested). The shotgun was in the hands of a local farmer out shooting rabbits with his son on that eventful day.
    These 3 Japanese escapes were walking along the railway lines coming towards him and his son as the rail lines lead to major cities.
    Any way Alf saw them and shot them dead.
    My father a local gun dealer in the 50's and late 70's purchased the shot gun from Alf in the 70's before Alf passed away, knowing the history and significance of the Cowra Breakout in 1945.

    There are several books written about the breakout. Some are full of mistakes, one claiming that my father drove one of the trucks to collect the captured escapes, but my father in our talks of the event never mentioned this fact.
    I hoped you liked this story. They were different times then.
