Looks to me like it could be a Parker Hale conversion to sporter (hunting rifle).
 I'm no expert on PH rifles but it looks like the quality you would expect from them. Nice sporting rifle.
Having seen the other photo's, I'm convinced it's 1916 manufacture.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

The fit and finish of the sporterising is not that good. The pictures dont show it but it does not match up from piece to piece very well. If I can get a safety on it and have it checked out, I will probably strip it down and refinish it.

i would just love to find someone in Houston that knew all the stamps (I think it has been back through the factory at least once if not twice) to build the history of the rifle properly

most of those last ones are inspection and re-inspections , but that minutia is not my area of knowledge , barrel is marked 16 it should be original i think , 

the "Y" prefix looks to be a fit for "enfield" in 1916 they seem to have used E to Z that year , but then it has been said they ran the entire alphabet 2-3 times in 16/17/18 , they made over a million mkIII* rifles in 1916 alone ,
