Well I can see that some changes were obviously made from the time this film was made.
In my estimation I think giving up the FN was a bad decision. You want stopping power and this weapon had it in ace's.


What grabs me a bit is to see the battle dress (Woolen) in 54, we were to wear in the Cdn. Forces until 1969.

Hi all,
Interesting; but after my time, would have been good to use.
How much lighter than the old 303; also easier to use, not as long and heavy

Passed to the WO; perhaps the officer had not handled one before

Comments, the old battle dress was good, maybe better than synthetic fabrics

Good health in 2020

The 1954 film shows one error.
After stripping the rifle it is not “ready to fire once again” as told, simply after putting in the magazine. You need to bring a cartridge into the barrel by open and close the chamber.
