I am a sgt in the US army currently serving in Afghanistan. I recently found a gun in the wardak province. After conducting my own research I have concluded that it is a SMLE NO1 MkIII. It was made at the BSA factory due to the BSA markings I found all over it. However, I would like to confirm my quest to find more of the history about this rifle. I have included pictures of a few of the markings so any help would be greatly appriciated. The Mujahideen used it during the soviet invasion and is decorated with little red beads in the front barrel band/muzzle cap/bayonet thingy. This gun holds alot of history and I spent countless hours researching it and cleaning it up a bit. Thankyou! PS: I have more pictures and can take more pictures if needed.
