Some sources show this image reversed left-to-right so that the trooper is holding the rifle right-handed but this is incorrect. The rifle is a bolt action rifle with the bolt on the right side of the receiver and since the bolt is not visible in this image, this is the correct orientation. Even the IWM displays this image both ways.
