Unknown .303 British Ammunition

Hello all,

I primarily collect surplus firearms, but I lack experience in cartridge identification. I received this ammunition along with a No4 Mk1 Lee Enfield and was told that it is from Pakistan. After further research, I believe it to possibly be from Iraq. Could anyone verify this? Also, can anyone translate the outside of the box? Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.


I believe those are Egyptian. IIRC the lighthouse on the box points to that origin, as does the factory code “10” in the headstamp, which I recall being the factory in Alexandria.

Yup, the label says 50 rnds. of Egyptian .303, from Factory 10.

Made in 1956.

I appreciate the info. I can’t believe I didn’t think to look into the possibility of it being produced in Egypt. Does it have much collector value? I only have 21 rounds.
