Any ideas a date of circa 1920/21 was suggested.

WOW, think of the story that must accompanying that old relic cause you know how it got there........Wonder what the story is?? ??
The Martini-Henry was the first purpose-designed breech-loading rifle adopted by the British military. Afghan forces took quickly to the weapon. Copies of the Martini were produced in Afghanistan around the time of the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878–1880), imported from Great Britain in subsequent years, and finally industrially produced at the Kabul Arsenal from 1894.
