People with guns collection # 33

Thought I would start off 2011 People with Guns with something a little different. This fellow qualifies. I don't know a thing about him, but the Lee-Enfield Mk III rifle would certainly suggest he served one of the many protectorates of Great Britain. Although that could be anywhere couldn't it? "The sun never sets on the British Empire." Unfortunately, the photo is printed on a heavily textured photo paper that makes it very difficult to get a detailed scan. How about some help from my readers. There has to be someone out there seeing this that knows about military uniforms or has a book on the subject. The photo is from the WWII era if that makes it easier... Little help?

By the uniform, he looks like he's in the Fiji Constabulary

WOW! That was fast! I do believe you're right Josh, thanks!
