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
