Marines and Short Rifles

Postby rd72 » 12 Jul 2016 05:59

HI all,

A question popped up elsewhere and in the interest of being accurate, I thought that I'd throw it up here... It started as a discussion regarding the rifles found on HMS Warrior.

Does anybody have any evidence of Royal Marines carrying the Naval Rifle (either Enfield or Snider)? There are pictures and artwork showing them carrying the P53/Snider Long Rifle but not the shorter, Naval cousin... Thanks.
