    Announcement Falklands War: Snipers Down South (New Book)

    We have a member (Gil Boyd), who has co-authored a new book which is now available on eBay UKicon. If you’re interested in this campaign and particularly sniper rifles, have a look.

    Falklands War: Snipers Down South

    Falklands War: Snipers Down South (click here)

    Attachment 106700

    This brand new, unique and limited edition hardback book by Gil Boyd and Frank Fletcher (both ex members of The Parachute Regiment) brings together the stories of the snipers who took part in the Falklands War in 1982.

    The 2nd of April, 2020 will be the 38th Anniversary of the invasion of the Falkland Islands by the Argentineicon Military.

    The views and stories are those told by the men themselves, from the various regiments that made up the Task Force. It covers the arduous and traumatic tasks they undertook 1000s of miles from home and in terrible conditions. It tells the story of these highly trained, band of men who carried the L42A1 rifle into battle.

    It is also the story of that rifle and how it endured from its origin as the Lee Enfield No 4 (T).303 sniper rifle to the L42A1 7.62mm sniper rifle it became. We also tell the story of its eventual replacement the L96A1 rifle from Accuracy International Limited.

    For each book sold a donation will be made to the South Atlantic Medal Association (SAMA) and the Airborne Assault Museum at IWM at Duxford in Cambridgeshire.

    Each book is signed by both authors.

    The book has 125 pages and is well illustrated with imagery throughout.

    Price includes postage and packing in UK. Paypal Only thankyou.

    For international sales and postage please contact seller prior to purchase.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.
