Standard British rifle during the early 20th century up to WW2. It could hold 10 rounds from 2 5 round stripper clips, it was made from english oak giving it a yellowish colour. The lee enfield was the most reliable weapon fielded in WW1. And in WW2 proved more useful than the russian mosin and the german kar98.
A British and a german rifleman were in a battle the german had spent his 5 rounds and tried to reload but the british had 5 more rounds in his Lee-Enfield and killed the german.
