Good to see an Aussie amoung the Enfield collectors.
Mate I'm going to steal that Breaker Morant pic of yours it's a pearler
Relo's in Tassie eh? You haven't by any chance had any weird growths cut off your shoulders have you as Tasmanians are regarded as having 2 heads and sheep molesterers here much like the Kiwi's.
Ancestors figured it wasn't worth running 2 much further as they found Paradise here and it was far enough away from the POMS and every other country.
The .303's hold a special place here and in New Zealand and every ANZAC Day there are parades where the gun salute is done using blanks and firing .303's.
For what they are they've accounted for a lot of game here in Australia from rabbits upto Buffalo(not really recommended though) and the Aussie forum I'm a member of(AHN Hunting) has quite a few SMLE collectors and user's as well plus a few BP freaks that shoot Sniders,Martini's etc in competition and some hunting.
