    The "loving care" NOT of the War Department/Royal Navy in WWI. To be serious though, the L.C. denotes the establishment where the rifle was issued.

    Good laugh - "LC" denotes an enlarged chamber.

    I 'm interested in, for lack of a better designation, the serial number stamped on the receiver ring: G7769. I've never come across one like it. If it were HG it would be Home Guard, but that was struck on the knox form. The serial numbers for the HMS Canadaicon were struck on the receiver ring, but did not have a prefix.

    Any thoughts? Has anyone come across a similar serial number?

    You're quite right! I must have been falling asleep there: Large Chamber it is.

    Usually the numbers banged into the MkIII's issued to the Royal Navy are preceded by a couple of letters, such as the most common: "PH" for "Priddy's Hard" (a certain RN depot) followed by the serial number.

    The rifle is dated "1917" on the butt stock, and I believe that the "LC" is a Ross factory stamp. It is both "George Rex" and "broad arrow" marked. The bolt does not have a "safety rivet".

    Yes, the "LC" quite likely was put on at the factory by 1917.



    Production or at least assembly of rifles seems to have continued into 1918 as well, despite the expropriation of the factory and the purported ending of production.
