BritishForces that operated close to , or beyond enemy lines in WW2 did use enemy weapons. The sound each weapons can be very distinctive. Using the enemy's weapons, or have them as well eases supply problems and prevents the sound being used to identify the type. Training in the use of enemy weapons was standard in some units. Y Service, Phantom and Commando's being three examples.
