There are lots of places that have parts for these. However a lot of them are in the USA.
In the UK you have a few as well. Devizes Gunsmiths or Valmont Firearms are both good. 
Although you need to send e-mails to Devizes, they don't answer the phone very oftenErmm.
It depends what parts you want; export or import restriction may apply.
There's quite a bit of stuff on internet sites as well, only there's little guarantee of the condition!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Well, I awnestly is no expert in this rifle. Its been in my family sins ww1 and I would be happy to make it back to its pride and glory. The front metal pice for baconet is missing, slinge part in front, original slinge, middele ring for front wood pice, under and over wood for barrel cover and probebly some more parts for theese wood pieces. Magacine has a small damage too. Its been living a hard life, but it fires as its should and acually goes realy stight. Its regestrated and its a great firearm.

Are you trying to return it to original military condition, or just make it nicer, but still a hunting rifle?
Is the wood at the back military also or do you need to replace that also?

That will tell us what parts you need.

Wait..If the bayo lug is missing..then I suspect the barrel has been shortened.
Wont be much use in acquiring all the parts, if the barrel is modified.

i tend to agree till we get to see the muzzle end of her , since the lugs were part of the bayo boss not the barrel ,
