    Mk. I modified sights , which had the battle sight removed, were used on No. 4 Mk. I (T), No. 4 Mk. I (T. LESS TELESCOPE) and No. 4 Mk. I* (T) and examples seen include those made in Britainicon, in the U.S.iconA. by Stevens-Savage and in Canadianicon by Small Arms Limited at Long Branch.

    Regarding the 1930s Trials No. 4, I believe that they would have all left RSAF at Enfield with the Enfield monogram (E F D letters superimposed on each other) stamped marking on the backsight. There were two versions of these sights on the Trials rifles. I had such a sight on a 1931 Trials rifle SN A1989. It was a No. 4 Mk. I which I used to own and which had been converted to sniper equipment.

    I cannot help on the Poole sight and I have never come across one.

    As a matter of interest, none of the Mk2,3 and 4 backsights were ever declared obsolete, like some other parts were were, so while they remained serviceable these sights simply continued in use right up until the last days of the old No4's into the 90's when replaced by the L98's. And even then, there were hundreds still carrying the Mk2's 3's and 4's

    I would imagine that ROF Poole backsights were post war simply because it was a means of keeping these smaller ROF's going post war - same as the bayonets from there and other odds and sods
