    Can you Post a Picture of your Uncle?
    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    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.

    Thanks for that. Did I post that once before myself?

    I'll look for a picture of him when I get home. I have some pics taken on his last leave before going overseas.

    My late great uncle. He was my paternal grandmother's youngest brother. He was a Jeep driver for his platoon leader. I never met the PL personally, but he came by my grandmother's house in 1989 to visit. He was retired and was going around the country to visit families of the men he lost. I spoke to him via telephone between 15 and 20 years ago. He mailed me some photos of my great uncle that he had. As far as my great uncle's death, apparently he volunteered to go on patrol and was shot by a sniper. Only 20 years old, and 5 months away from victory in Europe.
