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 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.

SOLD SOLD (LAY-AWAY 02/03) 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.

A rare British trials pattern X2 E1 bayonet and scabbard. This is the Belgium F.N. bayonet and usually carries both the X2 E1 designation and a serial number matching the rifle. This is a shortened X2 E1 experimental bayonet which has a blade length 10mm shorter than the 201mm blade.

The bayonet is for a NATO 7.62mm FAL Rifle in particular the X8E1, Type A 1953-61. The bayonet has the F.N. 'elastique' design pommel and catch and has two flash hider prongs, 1.6" long projecting forward of the muzzle ring. It measures 12 1/4" overall.
