WW1 SNIPER RIFLE WITH WINCHESTER A5 TYPE 'B' SCOPE 1916, 1066

It is not likely that this is original however the rifle is dated 1916 and the scope is certainly of that era, it is clearly marked with the Winchester Logo but does not have any British inspection marks. Hundreds of these scopes were purchased by the WD for use on British rifles during WW1 although it is not clear whether these were type 'A' or type 'B' or both. It never the less represents an example of a type of sniper rifle used during WW1.
