That's kind of interesting since lend lease wasn't a thing in 1939.

Possibly from the Russian Civil War? The Empire ordered 10,000 BSA Lewis in .303 calibre and another 1,200 in 7.62x54mmR. Plus, another few hundred were shipped to the Whites in the Baltics by mid-1919.

What nysa said- these are leftovers from the Russian Civil War and WW1.

Uhm, breech, not breach.

Today is known as "Black Thursday" for the Luftwaffe back in 1940. It culminated to the "Hardest Day" of the BoB in 18 August 1940.

Here is a Do-17Z of KG76 downed by a Hurricane near RAF Biggin Hill on 18 August 1940
