Lee Enfield straight from the Sea

Recommended Posts

Found somewhere on the French coast, still with live amunition (possibly from Dunkirk?  Len Smith of the Royal Fusiliers - at Dunkirk - told me in the early 70s that they removed the bolts from their rifles before ditching them into the sea.  He spent the resrt of the war in a P.O.W. camp at Thorn/Weichsel until the Russians came in January-February 1945).
The man apparently does not know how to properly restore these parts, and the way he is handling the amunition looks rather careless.
