I was just rooting around my parts bin and found a brass disc and screw from an old No1 Sporter someone gave me years ago. Having know interest in No1's back then, I just put it away. I was hoping someone could identify the markings. At the 12 o'clock position is;
R.F
9.16
At the 3 o'clock position;
R.1
At the 6 o'clock;
517
At the 3 o'clock;
95

Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

RF = The Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment)
9.16 = September 1916
517 = Probably the 'Rack Number'


Until 1881 they were known as the "7th Foot"

That's stage 2 'Enfielditis"!
There's no cure after that point.
