    My new Ross MkII 5*

    I thought I'd post my latest acquisition. A lovely Ross MkII 5* sporter. The stock stamps and cartouches have survived the years thankfully.
    My reading of them suggests it was issued to the 9th Bn - Light Alberta Horse? Not sure what the "LL" represents though.
    Then issued to the 7th Bn - BC Regiment? Presumably at Valcartier or Salisbury Plain?

    What do people think?



    I hope to sensitively restore the forestock, as I can do a duffel cut under the band, and I've managed to find a bayonet band.
    Cheers,
    Burt
    Edit - I've just realized the the 9/11 is probably a date. So not issued to South AB Light Horse.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Congratulations, a nice self bought Christmas present - definitely well worth resurrecting.

    The bayonet band arrived and the forestock front has been hand carved and stained to match.


    My next challenge is getting the sight base off, so I can assemble.
    Cheers,
    Burton
