Lee Enfield No5 Mk1 Jungle Carbine Receiver T Shirt



Lee Enfield No5 Mk I

Receiver Stamp T Shirt

The Jungle Carbine was an informal term used for the Rifle No. 5 Mk I which was a derivative of the British Lee–Enfield No. 4 Mk I, designed not for jungle fighting but in response to a requirement for a 'Shortened, Lightened' version of the No.4 rifle for airborne forces in the European theatre of operations. The end of the war in Europe overtook widespread issue of the No.5 and most of the operational use of this rifle occurred in post-war colonial campaigns such as the Malayan emergency, where engagement ranges tended to be shorter and its handier size and reduced weight were an advantage. This is where the 'Jungle Carbine' nickname comes from. Production began in March 1944, and finished in December 1947
