hard to say, but that type of sling is common on early lee enfield's here in New Zealand, and also on home guard requisitioned rifles during ww2.  Seem to recall they were locally produced to a war department pattern.  So were probably older obsolete stock by ww2 period.  I have 2 exactly the same.

Hi Marco - that's really interesting.   With this lead I'll do some research and see what else I canm find.   Nothing on the rifle suggests it was ever issued to NZ, but the sling could have been picked up along the way.  Fantastic.  Thanks for the input.
