DD339 Kneeling Rifleman
This is one of the most useful figures with no base… He can be positioned anywhere a collector wants to put him… especially filling up a Landing Craft.
This kneeling figure holds the classic ‘Lee Enfield Rifle No. 4’. This British bolt-action rifle was the direct descendent of the earlier SMLE (Short Magazine Lee Enfield) MK? which was introduced in 1907 and did sterling service throughout WW1 and into the middle of WW2.
The ‘No.4’ came into general use in 1943 and served British and Commonwealth Armies well into the late 1950’s. The rifle fired a .303 round and could hold 2 x clips of 5 rounds each. Tough, sturdy and accurate this Lee Enfield was one of the finest and most reliable rifles of WW2.
This figure requires NO base and can be used on both beach and inland scenes as well as in Landing Craft and on Armoured Vehicles.
