Tommys all had machine guns

Postby Mark Griffin » Sun Oct 05, 2014 11:59 am

Its often trotted out that Jerry thought that rate of fire of the SMLE was in fact down to us being equipped with machine guns.

Where does this come from? Is there a report or similar source document that this is stated?
