I'll bet that they just didn't understand a very common importer's mark - "CAI St. Albans VT" - and then misspelled it as well.

I think Ray has figured out the Enfield mystery. Oh, and your Garand's sling is on inside-out..:-)

Ray,
That could be - I've also read rumors that Albion Motors made some stamping used in SMLE production & that somehow that was the source for the Albion Enfield. Either way it was either sloppy police work or sloppy journalism

Hartley,
Regarding inside-out, with the 1907 sling there's the right way & the Marine way. ;)
