    The shots of the muzzle and the stock make me think it's a No1 MkIII.

    I believe it to be a No. 1, MK III SMLE, short magazine Lee Enfield.
    Not a MK I as no magazine cut off is visible.
    The receiver says it is definately not a No.4 due to no aperture sight.

    The second from the front is a No.1 MK III SMLE. 1942 Lithgow Australia 303
    The third from the front is a No.1 MK III2A SMLE. 1967 Ishapore India 7.62 NATO
    The rifle in back is a No. 4 MK IIA. 1950 Fazakerly England 303

    In front is a U.S. 1917 made by Remington in 1918, 30-06

    It looks like it has a round cocking handle, so it may be an earlier No. 1 MkIII. I have one very similar to it and it's marked 1913 ShtLE III
