These two rifles have been in my family since before I was born and my father got them still packed in original grease I'm just curious as to exactly what rifles I have here I'm sure they are no1 mk3 but any additional info about them and info pertaining to obtaining and mounting a scope to either one would be great! Thanks for the help!

You do indeed have 2 No 1 Mk III rifles that have been cut down to sporters. If the barrels have not been cut they could be restored to military configuration, however they could be enjoyed as game getters just as they are. This is pretty much how they would have looked in service:

Ahh yes thank you!! Now is it just easiest to find an aftermarket rail for these or is there a scope that will drop right onto the mounts?

You'll definitely need a mount/rail setup.
This is highly recommended but it does require drilling & tapping.
