welcome from a little less north , 

the no4 rifle was just being developed at that point after many years of trials in a few different forms , but shamu is correct the no1 mkIII-III* would have been issue in 1939 , shortly after that no4s would have been a lot more common as only BSA was still making the mkIII-III* in dispersal mode , except for Australia and India , 
if anything like here when he joined in 39 he may have trained with the no1 and later been issued a no4 - but im only speculating on this , either would be fun for both of you in the experience - i am guessing his father is no longer with us , but if he is ask him ,

Welcome to the forum from France.

Regarding the lovely poster; I can't see the main screw/ trigger guard spacer.
Or do I need to clean my glasses!

UPDATED
Here's the "exploded view" of the rifle with 3 changes.
I added the trapdoor hinge pin, the stock bolt washer & the leather washer, all of which were missing.
Then I added the "Magazine spring auxiliary spring as well!
I have it in 2 sizes if anyone's interested. I think I can e-mail them in these resolutions:
No1: 36 1/2" X 24 1/4" (2917Kb)
Or:
No2: 22" X 14 1/4" (2.4Mb)
Resolutions are different for best quality reproduction hard-copy at different sizes)

They've left the spring on the nose cap pad, no biggie. I assume the main screw collar is still in the woodwork. You'll need an x-ray to check it Shamu

Main screw collar stays put, it is part of an assembly, just like the sights stay on barrel.

Butt bolt washer usually stays inside butt stock too. Have you ever tried to hook one of those little bastxxds out?
I would leave it out the picture otherwise you have people using graphic as reference putting washers on their bolts like in the pic not realising that there is one already in the bottom of the hole.

But, if it is shown, steel washer should be placed at the threaded end of the bolt, the end over which it fits, not next to the leather washer as they go opposite sides of the bolt head. But I am not going to say anything, the pic is good to go.. 



I have the pic printed and am penciling in the factory part numbers against each item.

I tried to get it there there isn't enough room without overlapping the receiver or bolt. I may do one of those "goes here arrows"!

I'll do the spring for the other bolt though just because!
OK, moved the stock bolt washer, added the inner collar spring (but not the washer as I couldn't find a good image of one.)
I left the bolt & spring in the nosecap assembled for similar reasons.
Updated the earlier pic.
