Every detail here is intact...the .303 rounds; the Mark IV rifles; etc...EXCEPT the way the British .303 rounds sound; and, how they hit the bridge girder as the paratrooper was shooting at the German soldier.
The 'crack' from a .303 Lee-Enfield is much louder; and, when a .303 round hits something, even a steel girder...it makes a hole, or, at least, a big dent.
I've owned many of these rifles, and, not only are they a beautifully-made rifle, they fire an accurate and damaging round. I've ruined steel targets at shooting ranges with my Lee-Enfield Mark III; Mark IV; and, Mark V carbine.
These .303 Lee-Enfield (and, Lee-Metford) rifles fire a larger bullet with a smaller cartridge. That equals a large projectile traveling at lower speed that can do a lot of damage (as opposed to the faster smaller bullet - larger shell cartridges like the 30.06 and .270 Winchester bullets). Regardless, if a target gets hit it will know it.
Silver point 180 grain .303s did all kinds of damage to most any target it hit.
The British Lee-Enfield, regardless of which model (although I preferred the Mark III)...is a work of art! This is a great film! :)
