I thought the Wilmington-on-sea platoon had P-14's?

How about ZULU?
Yes I know they were supposed to be Martini Henry's but if you look down the line you will see the cocking pieces moving. A lot of the rifles were Long Lee's.

The town was 'Walmington-On-Sea' and although the Home Guard had some P14's as well as a few SMLE's the largest number of rifles were in fact P17's sent over from the USA.
 
Because of ammunition differences many P17's had a red band painted on the stock.

We have been watching a great series on Netflix. It's called "Peaky Blinder's". The history of a gang set in post WW1 Birmingham. It is very well played and written. Totally addictive after a couple of episodes.
We are at the end of the 4th (and last) series and it's really hotting up!
Plenty of Enfields, Webley pistols, the odd Lewis gun and possibly a Steyr -Solothurn S1-100. (could be a Lanchester 9mm) (yeah I had to look it up!)
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I've been watching an adult cartoon lately on Netflix. It's called F is for Family, starting American comedian Bill Burr. Set in the '70's, it's pretty funny. In Season 2, Episode 10, called "landing the plane" there is a attempted hijacking. At 22:41 into the episode, I think one of the police sharpshooters is aiming a Lee Enfield L42A1... funny where you see these iconic rifles pop up!

For any "Andromeda" fans on here:
