1917 is a 2019 World War I movie directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall). With World War I at its peak, Blake and Schofield, two young British soldiers, are ordered to travel deep through hostile land to deliver an important message. But it's a race against time because this message has to be delivered fast enough to prevent an attack that would mean certain death for hundreds of soldiers. The cast also includes Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Benedict Cumberbatch.
The following weapons were used in the film 1917:
Webley MK VI
British officers are armed with Webley Mk VI revolvers which are mainly seen holstered including by General Erinmore (Colin Firth), Lieutenant Leslie (Andrew Scott), Captain Smith (Mark Strong), Colonel MacKenzie (Benedict Cumberbatch), Major Hepburn (Adrian Scarborough) and Lieutenant Blake (Richard Madden). Nevertheless, some officers can be seen with revolvers drawn at the end.
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III
British soldiers including Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) and Schofield (George MacKay) can be seen with Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III rifles. The attention to detail and setting of the film extends to correctly portraying both the SMLE's magazine capacity of ten rounds, as well as ensuring the rifles are properly rechambered between shots. One exceptional example of this is after Schofield fires his SMLE and doesn't rechamber it in one scene, several scenes and tens of minutes later he cycles the bolt before firing at the start of the next engagement.
Mauser Gewehr 1898
German soldiers can be seen carrying Mauser Gewehr 1898 rifles.
Several Lewis Gun can be seen transported by British soldiers through the trenches. Most of them are equipped with dust covers on the muzzles.
Maxim LMG 08/15
Before the journey, Blake and Schofield get some Mills Bombs.
Webley & Scott No. 1 Mk. III*
15 cm Kanone 16
Disabled 15 cm Kanone 16 howitzers can be seen at the abandoned artillery base.
