The STEN (Shepherd Turpin Enfield) Mk.5 is a better-quality, more elaborate version of the Mk.2 that was introduced in 1944. Upgrades included wooden pistol and fore grips, wooden stock, bayonet mount, and a Lee Enfield No.4 front sight. All of these upgrades made the STEN Mk.5 easier to control and more solid than its more rushed predecessors.
They were issued to the elite Red Devils, Britain's elite paratroopers of the 1st Parachute Brigade, in Operation Tonga(Part of Operation Overlord, Normandy), Operation Market Garden (Battle of Arnhem), and all over Europe. After the 2nd World War, it continued to serve through the early parts of the Cold War with British forces around the world. From the Suez Crisis to the Malayan Emergency, it served with distinction until STENs were entirely replaced with the Sterling SMG in the 1950s-1960s.
