Korea, c. January 1951. Private (Pte) Chris Bell-Chambers, a member of the Sniper Section, 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), smiles and waves to a group of Korean children who have emerged from their hiding place after their village has been cleared of enemy forces. Snow lies on the ground and on the roofs of houses in the village. The rifle Pte Bell-Chambers is carrying on his shoulder is a .303 inch Short Magazine Lee Enfield (SMLE) No.1 MkIII*(HT). The rifle is fitted with a Sight Telescopic Pattern 1918 (Aust) with rubber eye piece and is attached to the rifle with high mounts. Note the rifle is cocked. (Donor I. Robertson)
