British Infantry Weapons

In 1940 the standard infantry weapons found in a British company would be the Enfield revolvers, Lee-Enfield rifles, Bren guns and 2in mortars. Sub machine guns like the Sten would not be issued until mid-1941.

Heavier support weapons like the Vickers machine guns and 3in mortars were kept at battalion level. By mid-war the Boys anti-tank rifle was replaced by the PIAT and these were issued at company level.
