Default Interesting Kukri

I have this kukri with some interesting marks; I am assuming that the 5-30 is a date, however, there are some curious marks surrounding the numbers, which I am curious about; are they arsenal marks, inspectors marks, and if so, from where.

The numbers are more likely an issue or even an export number. Probably postwar with the "broken back" blade profile and brass mounts. Possibly Indian Army issue.

Thanks, David; the 5-30, has a dash; do you think that it is pre-WW2?
