1917 Movie

Interesting War film. All weapons and uniforms appeared period correct. I watched the British Soldier operate hi MKIII SMLE very fast indeed. I have two SMLE's one MKIII* and a MKIV, and can attest to the fact they are a very fast bolt action, some say the fastest bolt action Military rifle ever. I would throw these two in the pot for a non semi automatic rifle for self defense. (I think they used a method of film speed up in the film, his empty cartridge ejection and reloading were a blur. I'm that fast of course.

My wife and I seen it about a month ago, we really enjoyed the movie. I did notice a couple of non period correct items, but I was quickly silenced by "she who must be obeyed".
