In most of the other sporter like stocked rifles I can see the tell-tale 10 round mags hanging out to confirm being an Enfield, but some have the mags obscured. Almost all in these photos seem to have the fore-end done away with right in front of the mid-band, with the exception of our unknown prone friend.

    Those are all fairly well known previously published photos, most of which have been posted previously here

    As you'll see by comparing the threads, many of those photos were taken at the Canadianicon Corps School of Sniping at Mont des Cats in June 1916.

    Many but not all Canadian brigades and battalions seem to have taken a fairly relaxed attitude to "sporterizing", but there is what also appears to be a Lee Speed sporter in use as mentioned.

    The question which I feel the most compelled to ask is why the one lot have a goat?

    This is generally believed to be George Paudash, his observer looks aboriginal to me. The other fellow is just clowning around in a Germanicon field cap.

    https://www.milsurps.com/attachment....4&d=1540800502

    Paudash is also second from right, front row in this one:

    https://www.milsurps.com/attachment....5&d=1540800502

    More info about him here.

    Seems he served less than a year in Franceicon due to various medical conditions. IIRC he was already quite an old man when he enlisted and was most unhappy about being sent home.
