The carbine has all original woodwork and metal work. The wood is marked 'F.O.L. or F.D.L Darvel No.4' (A Forward Operating Location (FOL) is a military term for facilities, defined as a scalable, 'warm' facility that can support sustained operations, but with only a small permanent presence of support. F.D.L is a Military term for Forward Defence Location. Darvel or Dervel is a small town in East Ayrshire, Scotland. During WW2 troops who were billeted in Darvel trained in the Highlands of Scotland and ended up fighting in Burma). The carbine is marked on the breech housing 'No.5 MKI (F)’ (Royal Ordnance Factory, Fazakerley) together with ‘4/47’ date (April 1947) & serial number ‘AA2320’. It has its correct flared muzzle, cushioned recoil pad which typically has some service wear, winged fore sight, flip up rear sight and sling swivels. Deactivated in 2017 to UK/EU specification the weapons magazine can be removed and it cocks and dry fires. The carbine comes with an original British No.5 Jungle Carbine Bayonet and Scabbard. The bayonet with 8" Bowie style blade measures 12" overall. The blade has staining consistent with age. On one side the ricasso it is stamped by the manufacturer ‘WSC’ (Wilkinson Sword Company). The reverse has small WD inspection marks. It has the correct muzzle ring, cross guard and pommel with lug button that has a good strong spring action. It has slab wood grips secured by screw bolts. The wood has just bumps and bruises to be expected. The bayonet is complete with its steel scabbard which is undamaged with original black paint finish.
