Lee-Enfield No.1 MkIII* Rifle

The Lee-Enfield No.1 MkIII* is seen carried by members of the Scots Guard. At the film's beginning, US troops are seen carrying the rifle as well. In reality, these American troops should be carrying the M1 Garand, however there were some instances in the early Italian campaigns (and in the Far East) where US troops were issued Lee-Enfields for logistical reasons.
