I suspect these would be O.K. for India and the Near East, possibly Malaya before the surrender, but not for Burma France and Germany was battledress.

Hi there.
The Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk. III rifles in the Mini Art kit are the wrong type for British ytoops in Europe in 1944 when they were using the No. 4 Mk. 1 Lee-Enfield rifle.

I would have thought by 1944 they would have been using Sten-guns rather than rifles?

Stens were not for everybody. The main weapon of the British soldier until the mid 50s was the trusty Lee Enfield. The .303 has a bit more of a thump than a 9mm and reaches further.

can't see a mad minute in a sten, not with aimed, good shots, anyway.

The Sten would only have been carried by the section or platoon leaders, unless they too carried the No 4 to avoid drawing attention to themselves (similar to some wiser officers in WW1 who wore soldiers tunics and carried Lee Enfields instead of pistols).
