A long shot but was 202 not one of the Home Guard Auxiliary unit? it would be nice to think this was linked to one of the "stay behind" units, but I would doubt they would have an M1A1, I would imagine they would have 28's.

IMO, i would say, that it is more than likely those are markings stamped when the weapon is sent back to the states etc for refurbishing and maintainance, before being sent back to combat or whatever, i think.
Theres a fantastic book called american thunder i think which has everything you could ever know from serial numbers, to inspector markings (GeG)from the states, but i think its out of print. otherwise, theres a really concise thompson forum, il try and find the link. those guys know their stuff.
hope that helps a little

Yes I did a bit of research on those units - trained in covert operations I believe - to resist a possible German invasion
