    Emile, that's the stacking swivel. It lets you stick three rifles against each other, kind of like a teepee. They weren't popular among British troops, though, so many of them were quickly discarded.

    The stacking/piling rod/swivel is a Turkish modification as they used Mausers with cleaning rods beneath the barrels for the same function-was not used on British rifles by the time of the adoption of the No.4 rifle-British piling swivels for the earlier LEs look like sling swivels with a cut out in the 'loop'-the Turks received the rifles as post war aid when they joined NATO-apparently large numbers were sold as surplus into the US in recent years.
