As far as I know, the jury's still out on that. Some say it's a British mark for "Field Repair" rather than a full FTR, others insist it's Indian, the same as the "FR" found on the buttsocket of Ishapore reworked rifles.

Personally, I don't believe it's Indian, for the simple reason that the Indians have marked rework on the L/H side of the buttsocket since at least early WWI (the MkI** IP's being a good example). Others, more learned and/or intelligent than I, may very well disagree.
