    Default Location of date stamp

    Hello just wondering if any body can help me with the location of the date stamp on a WW1 Enfield rifle.
    The reason for this is that I only want to clean a small piece where the date should be,the rest will be left as it is.
    The rifle was ploughed up in France about ten years ago,and is not loaded as the breach has been checked.
    A picture of the date location area would be helpful thanks Gavin.

    It will be on the band under the bolt handle and above the trigger,
    if it has not totally rusted away.............

    A very nice piece !
