    Default Enfield Tin Box cleaning Kit

    After my action cover fiasco, I'm hoping I did a bit better with this. I was looking for a cleaning kit for my No. 5 Mk. I Jungle Carbine and bought this one from a member on another forum. It appears to be complete and unused - oiler is still wrapped in paper. Based on the markings and the kit, what do you think?

    I'd say it was okay. My dad was in Malaya in the mid 50's and was issued with the No 5 Jungle Carbine and I've still got his cleaning kit for the rifle and it's, from what I can recall, totally identical to yours other than the oil bottle is brass (though I'd imagine the Bakelite one is also fine, just luck of the draw probably as to what oil bottle you ended up with in the kit?), the date on the tin is also 1946 as it happens.
