POTD: Falkland Islands Defence Force Shooting Historic Weapons

Photo Of The Day: The Falkland Islands Defence Force is the Volunteer Military Unit first established in 1892. The Force is fully funded by the Falkland Islands Government and works closely with British Forces to provide defence and security to the Falkland Islands.

The FIDF holds a number of historic weapons. This weekend, members of the Force had the opportunity to fire the weapons of their predecessors on the range.

This included iconic weapons such as the Self Loading Rifle, Light Machine Gun (formerly Bren Gun), and the Sterling Sub Machine Gun that have been used by generations of British and Commonwealth soldiers around the world.

With no land in sight, the sea can provide a perfect backstop. Below you can see the Sterling L2A3 – the Sterling submachine gun.
