Very nice! No.4 Mk.I (T) right? I've been kind of on the hunt for one of those for awhile but haven't been able to justify the cost personally. Is that an S51 H&H conversion then?

Yes H&H build a nice early set and it hits what you point it at but I have only shoot to 500 yards. Does what it's supposed to do at 200 yards on a 25 yards pistol target. It was a fair price.

Very nice rifle - well photographed as usual.

I particularly like the period spotting scope, nice touch.

pitfighter: I particularly like the period spotting scope, nice touch.

1930s Scout Reg. Nice bit of glass and with a small amount of practice you can pull faces out of shadow at past 600 meters and rank symbols on uniforms. These were a regular issue through the early 80s with the L42A1 and L86 CES. Later referbs will have a rubberized pebble grain coating replacing the original glove leather. Originally the brass tubes were blackened. I also have a 1911 30x Signals that was common WW1 and WW2 issue for snipers. Looks the same as the 20X Scout Reg.

That's an even cooler spotting glass knowing the history of it.
Amazing it was used into the 1980's in the UK.

Thanks for that.

Me on the far right, also in the 1980's in the UK - lol.

Looks like some of the cadets I met at Bisley. they marshaled the long ranges from 200M to 900M to keep one lane from picking up and walking across another still firing. LOL

Nice photo.

I think I still have a jacket like your wearing given to me by the service rifle champion at the Trafalgar meet in '01. I will look in my trophy box and see.

That will depend on what comes with it. $1k to $10K is the playground so shop wisely.

Ask questions. Ask more questions.

Cheers
