    Any Guesses without looking him up as to why he is famous - study his equipment

    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.

Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    By the way, he was the first US GI to set foot in Europe during WW2. Second pic is of his unit in Ireland.

    Yes, Pfc. Milburn H. Henke was the first - that was the point of the quiz - astute views will note the early equipment.

    The haversack and meat can pouch, lots of nice early gear! The cleaning rod sticking up from beside his long uncut bayonet is neat to see. He has it through the hole in the handguard of the bayonet to help secure it up top haha. Very cool picture, thanks for posting! Is that a gas mask in a bag under his left arm?

    Those are not gas trap rifles. Gas port. Look closely and you see the end of the barrel.
