Can anyone identify the rifle that my G.Uncle is holding in the attached picture?

Thanks

Thanks for such a quick response. Was this standard issue for RFA?

Were these special issue? Or were they issued as that’s what was laying about?

they would have been issued until a unit was fully kitted out. but others with more knowledge on here can answer that.....what intrigues me is where was the picture taken?

The location of the picture intrigues me as well. I can't quite read the writing on the wall but it definately refers to RFA and a battalion. It also feels French to me with the shutter type design?

Maybe my imagination is running away with me?
