Ww2 Home Guard Lee Enfield Rifle Cleaning Funnel :
WW2 HOME GUARD LEE ENFIELD RIFLE CLEANING FUNNEL .. Home Guard device consisting of a funnel with copper pipe joining it to an empty bored through 303 cartridge . This makes it easy to pour boiling water down the barrel to clean it , as the angled copper pipe arrangement allows insertion of the cartridge into the breech to form a good seal yet present the funnel at such an angle as to make the the pouring in of water possible w/o getting it on the woodwork or in the mechanism.. Funnel shows surface rust and some denting, brass / copper parts have much verdigris, but will clean up well ,o/w in good condition. Excellent accessory for the Home Guard or Lee Enfield collector .. and of of course just as useful today as it was 70 years ago. My picture shows inserted in the breech of a Home Guard Ross rifle but it works just as well in a P14 , P17 , or SMLE .I took the following from a HG pamphlet : HINTS AND MAXIMS FOR HOMEGUARDS...Always keep your rifle clean. After firing clean the barrel by taking out the bolt and drawing the 'pull through' through the barrel. An oil-bottle and 'pull through' are to be found in the aperture in the butt, the brass cover of which can be raised by inserting a coin or knife blade. ...The barrel of the rifle should be cleaned out regularly with hot water. This is best done by removing the bolt, opening the cut-out, and inserting a funnel in the breech of the barrel. Care must be taken to ensure that the water is boiling, not warm, and the rifle must be dried out thoroughly afterwards and carefully oiled through. Your rifle is your best friend, treat it so and it will never let you down. ...Home Guard Manual 1941
