Hi. It's the same rifle a No. 4 Mk I with the trigger attached to the receiver vs the trigger guard. Sadly, all the really good Lee-Enfield pages are gone.
Some markings are here. http://www.marstar.ca/html/reflibrar...urerMarks.html
If you take out everything on the address after the .ca then go to the Reference Library under Help, there's more info. Not particularly good info though.
This one's pretty good. http://www.allaboutenfields.co.nz/history/markings/
Have a look here too. http://www.allaboutenfields.co.nz/no...3-mk2-and-ftr/
Your's is in excellent condition. 56 FTR means Factory Through Repair(also means 80% of factory new). As in rebuilt in 1956 in the Fazakerly. That's not a bad thing. All the assorted flags, etc are factory proof marks. The stamp on the bolt head is a "Sold out of Service" stamp.
