What did the Brits use for a cleaning kit for the Lee-Enfield? I found an original oil bottle this weekend at a gun show, but am missing the rest. And where can I find the rest? Thanks for the help.

Well, I'm not up on WWII history or anything like that, but, my father (deceased) was in the Canadian Forces during that time.

I remember his old cleaning kit containing a rope pull through with attachment ends for brush and patch. Oil bottle and a small tool of some sort.

Sorry I can't help much, last time I saw it was about 20 years ago when he was cleaning out some of his old stuff.

John G:
The pull through is correct.
