British 1888 Mark II, 2nd pattern, Lee Metford Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. Sn BAYO 230 - BAYO 230
This is an early Edwardian, Lee Metford, 1888 Mark II second pattern bayonet manufactured for the British .303 calibre Enfield, Lee Metford Rifle. The Bayonet blade which is in good clean condition with original polish, is 12" in length, double edged and unfullered with a medial ridge running from the ricasso to the blade tip. The ricasso of the blade is also marked 8. 02 (manufactured August 1902) together with ER and 'Flat Top' Crown ( Edward Rex ). The reverse is nicely stamped with the broad arrow over EFD (Enfield) and an inspection stamp. The pommel carries the stamping NR.86 over 350. This translates into the Territorial Force County Association National Reserve (NR) for Warwick (86) and the bayonet number (350) The grips are of wood, held together with two brass rivets and are stamped B over TW within a circle. There is an oil clearance hole in both of the grips. The bayonet is contained in a 1903 pattern scabbard with the internal steel chape bit missing the leather frog. The scabbard is stamped to the rear with UNVTC 91. This is an unusual combination of markings which are worthy of further research to this scarce bayonet to the National Reserve.

The Famous Gallipoli Campaign, took place on the Gallipoli peninsula (Gelibolu in modern Turkey) in the Ottoman Empire between 25 April 1915 and 9 January 1916. The campaign resulted in massive loss of lives and casualties for British and allied forces. The South Wales Borderers took part in the campaign and the 4th Battalion lost 400 Officers and men out of 775 that landed at Gallipoli. The Battalion fought with distinction throughout the campaign and were given the honour of providing the rear guard in the evacuation of Sulva beach. They were evacuated in January 1916. Whist there the Division were awarded 2 Victoria Crosses. The Battalion were amongst the last to leave and only a few of the Battalion survived. This is a rare, near mint hook quillion 1907 pattern bayonet for SMLE rifles manufactured in September 1911 by Enfield. The ricasso is marked '1907 (Pattern), 'EFD (Enfield) '09 11(Date) & 'Kings Crown'. The reverse has inspection stamps. The blade is clean. The wood slabs are undamaged. The pommel is crisply stamped with Regiment mark 4SWB to the 4th Battalion South Wales Borderers and weapon number 692. It is in its original 1st type brown leather scabbard with correct steel locket and internal chape with the tip correctly showing. The leather is impressed with small inspection marks and AC with WD arrow. It is also dated 08 (1908) . The scabbard is fitted with an original WW1 1914 pattern leather frog (the rear helve carrier strap is absent). The rear of the frog has impressed ink stamp Beckworth C&M (manufacturer) and WW1 date 1915. It has the correct retaining strap with brass buckle. All leather, rivets & stitching of the scabbard and frog are intact. The price for this rare bayonet to a Battalion that fought with distinction at Gallipoli includes UK delivery. Sn 12961

British 1879 Artillery Sawback Bayonet and Scabbard. Bayo 224 - Bayo 224
This is an 1879 Artillery sawback bayonet made at Enfield. It has a 25 blade with fuller in the top section and medial ridge in the lower section. Its saw back is deep cut and very sharp. The only marks on the blade are the 'Broad Arrow' over "W.D." and the condemned mark denoting downgrading, usually to drill purposes. There is also a capital "W" and "R" on the top edge of the blade. The grips are black chequered leather. The bayonet is contained in a later steel mounted black leather scabbard. This bayonet is in good collectable condition. (see Skennerton's item B197, pages 154-156). The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 224

British X2 E1 Trials Bayonet, Scabbard and Webbing Frog. Bayo 222 - Bayo 222
This is an X2 E1 Trials bayonet. The bayonet is nicely plated, possibly for ceremonial purposes. The pommel incorporates the thumb release catch which works smoothly. The grips are slab wood, secured with two screw bolts. The tang is stamped with "X2 E1 7896". The flash hider prongs have been removed, again most probably for ceremonial purposes. The blade is the original length of 7.9" and not one of the shortened ones. However, the bayonet is contained in a No 5 MKII scabbard as opposed to the X1 E1 Belgian type. This was how the bayonet arrived in our passion and we find no reference to this variation in Skennerton's. The frog is green webbing and is in as new condition. The plating and conversion all looks professional and leads us to believe that this is a scarce prototype or trials version. It is worthy of further research. The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 222

British Land Pattern Socket Bayonet. Sn 12917 - 12917
This is similar to the example in Skennerton's, item B49. It has a slightly longer slot than the usual Land Pattern and could fit some sea service models with a foresight closer to the muzzle. However the blade is only 16" long, which Skennerton suggests could denote Indian Service. (see Skennerton's, page 40, Items B49 & B50). This is a socket bayonet worthy of further research. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 12917

Boer War Era British 3 Rivet, 1st Type, 1st Pattern, P1888 Lee Metford Bayonet, Scabbard & 1911 Brown Leather Frog. Sn 12826 - 12826
This is a rare 3 rivet, 1st type, 1st Pattern, P1888 Lee Metford bayonet, scabbard and frog as used by British troops during the Boer Wars. This pattern was only in production for a short while, as it was found that the grips were likely to split due to the positioning of the two small rivets. It has its original wooden grips which are not split with the rare 3 brass rivets and oil hole in the wood grips. It's 12" double edged blade with medial ridge has Crown VR (Victoria Regina) with "V.R. 11/89" and inspection marks at the ricasso (illustrated). The reverse of the ricasso and back of the blade have inspection marks. The pommel is stamped with the number "65". It has its original black leather scabbard with steel locket and chape.

All leather and stitching of the scabbard and frog are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 12826
