Lee Enfield Breech Canvas Covers

Post by Marghec »

Hi,

Can anyone please advise me when canvas breech covers were first officially used by the British Army for Lee Enfields. I have seen many anecdotal refferrences, and have seen photographic evidence of a variety of home made, locally adapted, rags etc used, but am looking for documentary or photographic evidence of issued items. Also any evidence of them being used by mounted troops.

Thanks,

John Tremelling
