Lee Enfield (SMLE) No1 Mk.III. rifle. Excellent + blued plain blade marked  Crown, G.R.I., Mk II, 10 '43, R.F.I. (=Rifle Factory Ishapore, October 1943)  on the ricasso and three Indian inspection marking: IS383, IS63 and IS184 on reverse side. False edge. Squared pommel with oil hole and crossguard with muzzle ring MRD 16.5 mm. Excellent wooden grips secured with screwbolts.
Correct shortened black leather scabbard. All stitches intact and no dents to the fittings. Both chape and top mound are marked RE in a box .(= Remington).

This is a No.4 Mk.III but it is not correct marked on the ricasso. It is marked Mk.II  which is an error. 
Very nice example in an Excellent+ condition.!
