I have a Lee Metford with the following unit stamp

5

M.B.F.T.

9

My guess was "Mounted Bridage.." but taht is not a Boer war designation I know... where else could it have been?

Maybe a small WW1 Unit?

"5th Mounted Brigade F.T. (whatever FT is) then (weapon) 9 " ?

I was wondering.... 5th Mounted Brigade Field Telegraph weapon 9 ?

 

It was found in South Africa so could be Boer War, Or German south West Africa 14-15 or German East Africa campaign by South African forces?
