TAB Episode 51: Cut-Down SMLE – WW1 Tunneler’s Gun?

The myths surrounding the use of cut down Lee-Enfield during WW1 are fascinating. I recently had the chance to take a look at an example of a cut down SMLE, which differed slightly in that it still had its stock – which I think makes it a more practical weapon than a truly cut down rifle.

In this video we’ll discuss the history of British WW1 tunneler and look at how they fought and ask the question would a cut down rifle have been useful in the confines of a tunnel?
