British soldier aiming a Boys anti-tank rifle. Probably North Africa. Chambered in .55 (or 13.97mm) the Boys anti-tank rifle was approved for service and began production in 1937, run off for six years before becoming obsolete. It could penetrate, with armor piercing ammunition, 21mm of armor at 330 yards.Yet in those war time years the Boys bolt-action anti-tank rifle saw some use, but not against the tanks of Germany. #war #photography
