    Unit Marking?

    I have looked up and down Ian Skennertonicon's book on The Lee-Enfield and have not located what this marking on the butt plate of my BSA 1918 No. 1 Mk. 3*. I assumed it could be a unit marking, but I cannot find any information on it at the moment. If anybody here could help I would appreciate it.


    Edit: Is M/216 a code for the manufacture. That is at least what I have found after digging a little deeper. Specifically Sanbra Ltd, Brimingham?

    Manufacturer's code seems correct.
