I currently own several war dated Enfield No. 4, MK 1 rifles. I'd like to share photos of these rifles with the forum members.
1943 dated Drill Rifle. You can see the white painted bands, the DR designation on the lower white band and where the stock and chamber were cut away to deactivate the rifle. Shown with the rifle is a MK II helmet, an unissued canteen and Canadian marked skelton style canteen carrier.
1944 BSA (Shirley) manufactured No. 4. Also shown are the spike bayonet with scabbard and frog, breech cover, bandoleer for .303 caliber ammo, brass oiler and pull thru.
1945 Longbranch manufactured No. 4. This grouping is for my RCAF display and includes the RCAF blue sling, spike bayonet, scabbard and RCAF P-37 frog. Also shown is an Canadian Air Cadet's side cap with the white AC flash and cap badge, an 1941 dated copy of Manual of RCAF Drill and Ceremonial, a set of corporal stripes and a black plastic oiler.
