They used the British Lee Enfield SMLE Mk III in .303 caliber. For a bolt-action rifle it was capable of being fired very quickly, although it was not as powerful as its opponent, the Mauser 98 rifle used by the Germans and Turks. [The Canadians in World War 1 were less fortunate than the diggers, using their own rifle called the Ross which was not as good.] The Lee Enfield was also standard issue to British and Commonwealth armies in World War 2, Korea, and Malaysia.

This was a straight pull bolt action .303 rifle issued to the Canadian military starting in 1903. It had some problems. See the link below for an article on the Ross.

Canadian manufactured military firearms have typically been firearms with origins in other countries which were manufactured under licence in Canada (e.g., the Short Magazine Lee-Enfield Rifle, the C1 Self Loading Rifle [based on the British L1A1, itself based on the FN FAL], variants of the M16 and M4 manufactured as the C7 and C8). One notable exception to this was the Ross rifle, which went into production in 1905. It used a straight pull bolt, and fired the British 7.7x56R (.303) cartridge. However, it was found to be problematic in the mud during WWI, and was quickly replaced by the Lee-Enfield rifle, although it remained popular with snipers and sharpshooters.

A little more detail would surely help, but as with any older, used firearm, a general checkout by a gunsmith familiar with Ross would surely be a benefit.If it's a Military Ross, the calibre won't be marked, but it will be .303 British.If it's a Commercial Sporting rifle, it could be .303, .35 or perhaps .280 Ross, but WILL be marked on the barrel. I do have spare Ross rifles both Military and Commercial, available to US residents only, as well as original and re-printed Manuals. Contact me at

It did not. If anything, the War brought a strengthening of ties among the various Colonies of the Empire- all engaged in the fight. Canada plunged in and all major units except one regiment were armed with the Canadian designed ( and somewhat unreliable) Ross rifle. The Ross rifles- named and produced by Sir Charles Ross, who was clearly a Briton. They were different in caliber (.280 Ross) and action ( straight pull, like a modern assault rifle or automatic) than the issue RA Enfields so familiar to the British. Canadian nationalism, did get a positive shot with the Ross rifles- but critics knew they had a tendency to jam, and worse still the bolt could blow out, possibly injuring the gunner, when the weapon was fired. Major reliability issues dogged the Ross, and they were not used in future wars. ( Many were sold surplus). Canadian troops were engaged with the British in such major campaigns as Vimy ridge, and a number including top ace Billy Bishop- served with the RAF under British command. Lt.Colonel Bishop was top scoring allied ace of World war I- at 72 confirmed kills.
