Try one of the Arisaka sites. There are at least two in our header.
Let us know what is written......

What I found out so far
第三〇一三設 第参號 3013rd Construction Unit (probably) No.3
the left now in order to read it. 第 is read as "dai".
三 is 3
０ is zero
一 is 1
Second to last character 參 has several meanings: coming, going, three, visiting...
Last character 號 is pronounced "go" and has several meanings: make, model, number, part of that group...
my references showing that #3013 was for the 103rd Naval Construction Unit under the 35th Army in the Philippines. Definite connection I could not tell you, but interesting imo. Too bad there is no code kanji above the number--it would have provided further support to this poss. connection.
