I did not want to leave out Kipling, I did not want to leave out Doyle, they are the ones that were there. They are the ones that thought the 303 British rifle was a piece of Sh#$$. They are the ones that knew the problem was not going to be fixed. No one would say the British (like Springfield) was WWHUA as in 'working with their heads up donkey'. Because 'HERE COMES the GERMANS' like the 303 rifle against the Mauser all over again and the British having no way to catch up with the numbers.

I do like that story/exchange the Germans had with the British: The British informed the Germans they were using the 303 bolt operated rifle and the Germans responded with "really, we thought all of you guys were using machine guns". To bad the term "WE WISH' had not been invented yet.
