Canada retires the Lee-Enfield after 114 years of service.
I shamelessly cribbed this from the "National Post". I didn't know that the Enfield was still in front line service with the Canadians. I really like the Enfields, I have 2 of them.
They are from front to back, my 303 Enfield, my Springfield 03A3 and my 308 Enfield.
My Enfield was made at the Ishapore Royal Armory in India in January 1945, She is a Number 1 Mark III. My other Enfield is a "308" enfield made in 1968 for the Indian Police. Both were made in the same arsenal. I thought that was pretty neat.
I have copied the entire article through the magic of "Cut and Paste". I thought that this was a really cool article for us people that like history and rifles. I am using "Chrome" to do this article. so the fonts are a bit different.
