Best Answer

The standard British Soldier in World War One was armed with the Lee-Enfield Mk1 Type 3 Rifle SMLE (affectionately referred to as the Smelly, Short Magazine Lee Enfield). It fired a .303 caliber bullet, each magazine carried 10. The rifle was so effective it was used throughout both World Wars and is still encountered in limited numbers on modern battlefields.

Officers and NCO's were typically given a webley revolver in addition to the SMLE.

Machine Gun crews were armed with a variety of automatic weapons, the most common being the Lewis Gun.
