Link to Rob’s (better!) version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=557&v=AkHMZpcHYSg

Mike and Rob discuss how the lessons learned in the Boer War impacted the rifles and personal carrying equipment of the British soldier in the run up to 1914. How and why did it result ultimately in the SMLE Mk.III and 1908-pattern belt kit, from a starting point of the MLE/MLM and Slade-Wallace equipment?
