Well, you know the deal about pictures and words, so here they are:
I have to say seeing the markings not particularly lined up, as if they were manually done, kinda of concerns me. Am I too paranoid? I looked at https://www.milsurps.com/enfield.php?pg=in2.htm and it did not help me identifying the markings. So, what is it?

Manufactured by RoF Maltby (Yorkshire) in 1944, subsequently FTR'd by Fazakerley.

(FTR = Factory Thorough Repair)

Those markings are pretty good for both Fazakerley and Maltby - the Maltby markings normally look as of they were done by a bunch of Drunken monkey's.

Thank you - yes it would be.

Should concentrate on what I am doing and not listen to the new C19 travel restrictions whilst typing.

As of 6pm tonight, whilst we are not in 'lockdown' all the surrounding counties, are and travel into and out of them is banned except for justifiable reasons (such as travel to work or hospital).

Most of the NW & NE of England, all of the South and much of the North of Wales have such restrictions and it looks like Liverpool and London are next on the list as things continue to worsen.

The daily number of cases is now higher than it was in the peak of the 1st 'wave'.

No lockdown in France yet but new restrictions for bars and restuarants; plus the gyms and pools have closed in Paris. Figures have been worse here than in the UK. 
While there is far more testing now, which obviously highlights more cases; the actual percentage of positive cases is increasing within the number of total tests. This does prove it's still spreading.

I was in Wales for training first week in March, not many cases back then. However it turned out to be an adventure to get home; as Fly Be went bust on the wednesday night and we were supposed to fly from Cardiff at 8am the following day! So Taxi, then train to london then Eurostar to Paris! 

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
