The Cheshire Regiment was a line infantry regiment of the British Army, part of the Prince of Wales' Division. The regiment was expanded in 1881 as part of the Childers Reforms by the linking of the 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment of Foot and the militia and rifle volunteers of Cheshire. The title 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment continued to be used within the regiment. On 1 September 2007, the Cheshire Regiment was merged with the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment (29th/45th Foot) and the Staffordshire Regiment (Prince of Wales's) to form a new large regiment, the Mercian Regiment, becoming the 1st Battalion, Mercian Regiment. The Cheshire Regiment served with distinction in the Boer wars and both WW1 & WW2. The Enfield Lee Metford, 1888 Mark 1, Type 2 Bayonet was manufactured for the British .303 calibre Enfield, Lee Metford Rifle which were issued to British and allied forces during the Boer war and WW1. This bayonet to the 5th Battalion Cheshire Regiment has a superb clean double edged and unfullered blade with a medial ridge running from the ricasso to the blade tip and the blade is crisply marked by the manufacturer ‘Wilkinson London’.

Post 1858, British Army Sappers & Miners 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback Sword Bayonet Volunteer Regiment Marked ‘V Lcs E1 83’ With Scabbard Regiment Marked ‘2 Co 42’. BAYO 270 - BAYO 270
British Sappers and Miners Units adopted an oval barrel rifle in 1855 and produced their own distinctive bayonet with a Falchion or pipe backed blade. The leather scabbard had brass fittings. After 1857 the Sappers and Miners were renamed the Engineers so the blade is sometimes called the Engineers Bayonet. After removal from Engineer service they became a side arm particularly for the Medical Corps. Early examples had a leaf spring secured by a rivet but post 1858 the springs on these bayonets were secured by a screw. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade (see pages 121-124 and item B160 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has the correct 24”pipeback blade which has just light staining consistent with age, brass crossguard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with post 1858 retaining screw and push button which works as it should. The ricasso has no visible manufacturer mark but one side has a small inspection mark. It's original black grips are have just light service wear and correctly secured by rivets. The pommel has a Volunteer Regiment mark ‘V’ over ‘Lcs E1 & 83’. The bayonet measures 29 ¼” overall and is complete with it's original leather scabbard with brass locket and large brass shoe chape. The leather has some service wear but the leather and stitching are intact. The locket is Regiment marked ‘2 Co 42’ most likely 2nd Company & 42 (weapon number or 42nd Regiment). The price for this Regiment marked 1855 Pattern Lancaster Bayonet with scabbard includes UK delivery. BAYO 270

Wilkinson 1907 Pattern, 1941 Dated Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 255 - BAYO 255
This is a scarce 1917 pattern bayonet made by Wilkinson during the Second World War. These bayonets were issued to all the services from 1936 onwards and this is one of the batch ordered by the war office on the 15th July 1941. The blade is marked with 1907 W.S.C. over 10 42 (October 1942). These bayonets are not to be confused with the bayonets that Wilkinson were contracted to make for the Lanchester machine gun as those carry the wartime code for Wilkinson of S 294. This bayonet is one of only 41,907 made before the Lanchester machine gun bayonet contract for which 87,600 were produced and is therefore a very scarce in the 1907 run of bayonets.
