There have been several rifles made as military rifles in caliber .303 British (.303 Enfield) The most common have been the SMLR (Short, Magazine, Lee-Enfield) known as the No 1 Mk III, and it successor, the No4 Mk I. The link at the bottom of the page will take you to a website on surplus military arms, Scroll down the left side to the rifle you want, and it will take you to an article on that rifle, with photos. Can't tell you much from a serial number alone. ENGLAND is an import requirement, telling you which country it was made it.
