"Storming Juno." A Canadian made for TV movie available for rent from YouTube about the Canadians on D-Day. It follows an infantry platoon landing on the beach, a Dual Drive swimming tank landing on the beach, and a paratroop company. I did not know Canadian paratroopers took part, but it turns out the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion did. Canada raised a 2d Parachute Battalion, which became part of the 1st Special Service Force. Something else I learned is that the Canadian had their own design of helmet. They started the war with a Canadian version of the British helmet, the Mk. II, but then developed an improved version somewhat like the British P-44, the Mk. III, which was issued to troops talking part in the landing. Done in a very understated, very Canadian style.
Doing some more googling and I have stand corrected. The Canadian Mk III helmet is actually the British Mk III. They were provided to Canada by the UK.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
