Remembered Today:

Mark of Mystery #2

Recommended Posts

This interesting mark first showed up on a Mk IV oiler. Lacking any other information, we classified the mark/maker as an Unknown Soldier.

(Scroll down the list to see the details.)

I was quite surprised when an Australian correspondent reported that the same mark appeared on the underside of a barrel on a 1943 BSA SMLE Mk III*.

Any information you might have would be appreciated. Extra marks if you can point to a book, website or other documentary source of information.

Just an observation, could it be made up from letter stamps, the smaller triangles look like the letter  'A'.

I like the Australian echidna theory - but I don't know of any Australian manufacturer of Enfield oilers and/or barrels that used that particular symbol.  But I still like the idea.  <smile>  Thank you for making me laugh aloud.

Thank you, also, for the link to RoyalEdward.net.
