Lots to love with this picture

I'm gonna say... Canadian?  Correct me if I am wrong, but the sniper rifle looks Springfield 03 to me.  The light machine gun is obviously a Bren.  The helmet looks US, so, a rifle and helmet is North American.  But that uniform doesn't look US at all.  And he has a marlin-spike knife clipped on his belt.

Odd kit, no?  Well, odd, in that I am unfamiliar with it.  So that's on me.

That's a Brit helmet. The mesh cover is throwing you off.

That's no 1903, look at that front sight!

That's a P.14 with a Warner-Swazey scope.

So he's Canadian, eh.

And it's Swasey. I always spell it wrong first try.
