    We taught a whole lesson about care for weapons in sub zero climate, removing oil and grease and replacing with graphite powder. Even light oil freezes, better to have nothing than that. You can't add when it's hot as it still chills down after. Yes, a definite problem after a certain temperature drop.

    There is a video about the Parachute Regiment that has some historical footage as well as new Paras being taught about the regiment's history. In it, you can see a demonstration of how an WWII Para would have been kitted for a jump.

    No Brens, no machine guns. You can't parachute a largish force without their additional equipment, ammunition, mortars, radios, food, etc.

    Funny that should come up. I was just trying out the fit of a single Bren sling and I must have a regular SMLE sling with Bren hooks? Well, if you like carrying the gun up under your armpit, ok, but for those of us over 6" tall, I like a rifle to hang a bit lower, so had just though about putting two Enfield slings together in a manor similar to what you describe. Should give me plenty of length then. :-)

    Sure, but they would still have Stens. But I suspect they would want the firepower of the Bren. Sorta like having the PIAT along... Big Medicine.
