    Were not the Estonians supplied with a lot of WW1 surplus equipment by the allies - Britain in particular ?
    Yes. British pattern M1902 uniform was the main tunic that Estonians wore (IMO). Plus other equipment. As far as I recall about the weapons, Lee Enfield were mostly supplied and used by the Russian White Army. But Lewis machine gun was widely used by Estonians.
