LEE-ENFIELD RIFLES in CONTEMPORARY VIDEO CLIPS


The Pathe News videos available here variously show film covering

the Pattern '14 No.3 Rifle, the SMLE No.1 Rifle and No.2 Rifle,

the No.4 Rifle and the FN-SLR Rifle and the EM-2 Bull-pup precursor to the current SA-80 Rifle,

plus Service Rifle Target shooting at BISLEY CAMP RANGES Post WWII

Below from the first three links to video clips, are three training films made by Walt Disney during the war,

at the expense of the Canadian Government, and therefore the latter's property;

and a 1940 newsreel of the Boys Anti-Tank rifle in training use.

View a Pathe news clip of the rifle in use at a contemporary 1950s military demonstration.

This would quite possibly have been the same international event

described in the New York Bureau's news report attached to the photograph,

already here illustrated, of Corporal Unworth and a colleague

respectively carrying the EM-2 bull-pup trials and Lee-Enfield No. 4 rifles.

 


 

Here is a Pathe News video covering the introduction of "The New Rifle" - the FN SLR L1A1

 

A film of the Home Guard video in training with the Enfield Pattern '14 (No.3) Rifle

 

 

Pathe News film of Cadets at Bisley in 1953 with the Lee-Enfield No. 4 Rifle

 

 

 

This last Pathe Film shows the Fulton Family of Bisley fame. Sergeant Fulton,

who ran the famous Bisley gunsmiths still extant, twice won the King's Prize.

He is shown here shooting, and usefully employing his black labrador gundog.

He is firing his Lee-Enfield No.1 rifle (SMLE), his father is shooting his Martini-Henry,

and his son is shooting a Model No.1 BSA miniature rifle
