  • A 1916 SMLE No3 Mk1 by @chaseingtheoutdoors! I love the design of these rifles, it's almost like someone took a thick tree branch and formed it into a gun!

  • From the American Rifleman Archives |  Britain’s "New" Rifle — by Mark Keefe |  At the outbreak of World War II, the British soldier was still armed with the same rifle his father, or perhaps even his grandfather, carried. The Short, Magazine Lee-Enfield (SMLE) had, since 1902 with modifications, delivered sterling service from the mud of Flanders to the farthest reaches of the Empire. It was with this rifle that "Tommy Atkins" faced the might of Hitler's Wehrmacht in Norway, France, Belgium, North Africa and, later, Italy. The SMLE served on throughout the war, particularly in the hands of Commonwealth troops and the more neglected British formations, despite being declared obsolete in 1941. There is no need to belittle the SMLE or No. 1 Mk III and 111*, as it was rechristened in 1926, but the British were in need of an accurate, mass-production rifle. The need was even more acute after the loss of an astronomical amount of equipment during "The Miracle of Dunkirk" in 1940.
