Actually, I doubt if it will matter much who the maker of any of the firearms was …
 ;)
... pretty hard to tell, from even 5 feet away, who made a particular Sten gun or No. 4 Lee-Enfield rifle … 

Just thought it would be "extra cool", if one or the other happened to be Long Branch production, to put that one with the Canadian portion of the display. (Lots of Long Branch rifles and Stens went into British service too, however …) 

Soon should have a pretty good idea what I can contribute … looking like it might be more than I first thought.
