Enfield Oil Bottle

Article about: Chaps, I got this for my SMLE, did not cost me much at all to be honest, is it genuine? Not sure if these are reproduced? I presume EFD stands for Enfield? Cheers

    A very nice condition oiler Panzer 3, how do you date it to 1913?

    W.H. Briscoe & Co., Ltd. is the maker and they are supposed to have produced oilers from 1915 - 1918.

    Very interesting. I meant to pull out my small collection of oilers last night but forgot. I do have one made by Briscoe but, since it has been so long since I have looked at them I don't remember the specific inspector's markings. If you gentlemen like, take a look at this site:

    Oiler Index

    Lots of information on markings. I do think that the "13" (or letter "B") is an inspector's marking/number rather than a date but I could be wrong. These little brass puppies are fascinating.....

    Look specifically here:

    Fast_Finder_Oiler_Index

    Click on the symbol and it will take you where you will find the info. It shows the "B" or "13" was part of a Birmingham inspector's marking and W. H. Briscoe & Co., Ltd. was in Birmingham, so...... ?
