It was given to the Free French forces in Europe. The Phillipine army (although not most U.S. Forces in the Phillipines) was almost exclusively armed with it - The Phillipine Scouts being the biggest exception. As you stated it went to Britian where it was used mainly by the Home Guard. It also went to Canada. It was well used in the US as photo's of Base Guards, Relocation Camps and POW camps show. I'm sure there are many more instances of it's use. Most likely it was used in Basic Training until production of the M1 Garand was ramped up enough so that troops would actually train on front line weapons. It still earned it's keep until the guns fell silent.
