While watching the Military Channel last evenings airing of Sgt York, they specifically stated that York used a model 1917 Enfield, and that it is ON DISPLAY st Middle Tennessee State University.
This is contrary to what I have always heard? That most feel he DID use an Enfield, but that it is not for sure, and thereby unidentified.
If anyone knows FOR SURE, I sure would like to know?
Also, they agree he used a 1911 Colt. I remember hearing that the serial number of the Colt is known, but has not been located? Anyone know anything about this while we're at it????
Makes great conversation.
