We have just aquired a small batch of .22 Lee Enfield No4 Mk1 Rifles converted by AJ Parkers in Birmingham for Malaya.

These are all marked Alfed Parker Birm on the left side & FMP on the right side of the action

F.M.P. = Federation of Malaya Police

These are the same as the Royal Navy N.9 .22 Training Rifle supplied by Parker Hale

These were probably supplied to Malaya / Malaysia during or just after Independance

**************
The Federation achieved independence on 31 August 1957. All Malayan states later formed a larger federation called Malaysia on 16 September 1963 together with Singapore, Sarawak and North Borneo. Singapore was expelled from the federation on 9 August 1965.

The FMP used the same weapons as the regular Army at this time i.e. Lee Enfield No4 & No5 Rifles, Bren & Sten Guns etc

*****************

This example originally manufactured by Maltby in 1942, FTR at Maltby during WW2 & post war went through FTR at the Royal Ordnance Factory Fazakerley in Liverpool.

These recently came out of the Kuala Lumpur Arsenal in Malaysia as part of a large disposal of various military surplus.

This example dating to 1942, has matching numbers, nice walnut furniture with early low wall fore-end

************

These all need to be degreased, cleaned & inspected as time permits.

This example has been degreased, cleaned & inspected.

The wood work has been oiled & waiting to dry, the last stage is to ensure fore-end is correctly bedded.

Should be ready from the 16th November
