    1914, 1917, Enfield used by Nazi Waffen SS

    At the attached Youtube link is a biography of Heinrich Himmler. At the 44:48 mark in the video is a Nazi Waffen SS soldier using a 1914 or 1917 Enfield. The soldier might have been a member of the Britishicon Free Corps, members of which joined the SS to fight the Soviets.

    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. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction).

    There's a piece of footage showing the Volkssturm marching out to meet their doom at near war's end wearing civilian attire and carrying captured allied weapons. Not a mixed bag but well equipped. I don't think there was a shortage of allied hardware in their coffers...

    That part of the video does start with Britishicon Free Corps. On the other hand, it also looks like a very much later insert to make up video length.

    I agree. Therefore an Eddystone P.14 rifle.

    Interesting article and well researched. Look at 28:23 the soldier top right in the black & white photo. Looks almost like a Sterling / Sten he's holding!! Can't think of a side magazine fed Germanicon weapon in 1938 like that.
    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA

    MP18 Bergman first produced in 1918. Britishicon Lanchester was a copy of the later version. Sten magazines too, as it was already in production for the Lanchester. Sten and MP38/40 magazines should interchange.

    Can you re-check? At that time I only see a school class.
