OK. Watched Siege at Jadotville again yesterday. My wife always says I have an uncanny ability to notice the most mundane and useless information. The sniper in the group uses a No4 T. Note that he is left handed. Later on, he's called upon to snipe some fat guy in a white suit. Sniper uses a Bren Gun... shoots with his right hand...

The right hand/left hand mistake could maybe a reverse image?? 
I remember having watched that movie...and I'm also spotting the type of firearms that is used but couldn't remember that one.  Good catch then Thumbs Up

The guy who introduced my Dad to competitive shooting back in the 1950’s would switch over in the middle of a match when his eye got tired.  He could shoot as good left as he could right handed.

Dont brens have off set sights because of the mag.
So shooting it right handed would make sense?
Anyway I liked the movie, sad the fellows got no recognition for their service.

Yes the sights are offset to the left
