Ross Rifle

At the start of the war the Canadian Infantryman was equipped with the Ross Rifle. It did not do well in the trenches, frequently jamming because of the dirt and mud. By 1916 it was replaced in combat by the Lee-Enfield and used for training in Canada and England.


  1. Chris: Would love to talk about getting rights to use this image in a exhibit I am working on. Can we discuss?

  2. Absolutely. I am always interested in getting these images out in the public as opposed to being in a box on a shelf.
