Top o' the morn all! I've owned several Enfields of all types over the years,and regrettably strayed into different collecting direction,from my favorite arm of arms.Just got back into the scheme of it with a nice 1917 Enfield built No1MkIII* in non import all matching shape,with Wilkie bayo.Now I'm expanding the lot with generous bid on my all time fave of Enfields,a No5 "jungle carbine".However,this one has a 10/44 date and ROF(F) build mark,no imports and all the correct features,aka barrel flutes,milled cut in the rec. and bolt knob and T.guard,ect...Also has a '44 dated sling involved.SO,what say yea about that date? Sound OK? It's electropenciled as the rest of the rec. markings,the butt rubber pad is well chipped and worn,and the stove paint is @60%.Nice sharp bore,and no other police or militia(Malaysian,ect.) marking.Perhaps she engaged a Japanese fellow or two in the CBI? Or just fanciful thinking? I'll probably have $400US in her when it goes through....My SMLE acquisition...

Per regiments.org, the RSF had an 11th Battalion in both wars. As mentioned above, most regiments had "conflict only" battalions during the world wars.
