Tommy's Weapons

Learn all about the different weapons that the British Infantry carried in 1945.

Do you know your Mark 1 Star Bren Gun from your Lee Enfield Number 4 Rifle? Find out how these weapons worked, how fast they were and what wounds they inflicted.

This is part of a series of video clips which will be posted each day this week. Look out for the others which tell you about the uniform they wore, what they carried in their kit and finally the glorious arrival of VE Day when the German's surrended and there was victory in Europe.
