HBSA WW1 Commemorative Film

Between 2014 and 2018 the HBSA set out to collect together and demonstration fire as many of the smallarms used in WW1 as we could arrange. These demonstrations were recorded, and have now been edited into our WW1 Commemorative film. This film can now be viewed on YouTube here >>>>
