    The broad arrow above the serial number indicates a possible British or maybe Aussie make. My Aussie is buried in my safe or I would get it out and compare markings

    Royal Ordnance Factory Fazakerley, near Liverpool, England.
    "A" suffix means use of some non-interchangeable parts (the times were desperate!)
    War-time expedient dual-aperture backsight (ditto)

    Looks like it could tell some stories.

    Some photos show it cocked. If you close the bolt while pulling the trigger, it doesn't cock. Best stored that way.

    If you want to store it more safely, pull the cocking piece out just one click to half-cock. Nothing will work, neither trigger nor bolt. The only way to release it is to pull the cocking piece out again to the cocked position. Not foolproof, but better than most gun locks for the unknowing.

    HTH

    P.S. Aussies didn't make No.4 rifles. Only England (Fazakerley, Maltby, Shirley), USA (Savage), Canada (Long Branch), Pakistan
