The Norfolk Regiment entered the First World War with two regular, one reserve and three Territorial Force Battalions (one of cyclists), with the Regiment expanding to nineteen Battalions. The Norfolk Regiment also raised many service Battalions during the war who were a part of Lord Kitchener's New Armies. The service Battalions were created specifically for service in the war, believed, at the time, to be the War To End All Wars. The total number of men raised during the war and who served with the Norfolk Regiment amounted to 32,375 of whom 5,576 were killed and many thousands wounded. The Regiment served with distinction on the Western Front and after the war in 1931 the Regiment was renamed the Royal Norfolk Regiment. This is an excellent 1st Type, hook quillon '07' sword bayonet by Wilkinson, complete with original 1st type scabbard. These bayonets were introduced in January 1908 (see page 186 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets by Skennerton). This example was made in 1909, a year after production began. The sword bayonet has a 17" steel single edged blade which is stamped on the ricasso with the Kings crown 'ER' (Edward Rex)and '1907' (pattern) together with date '3 09' (March 1909) and 'Wilkinson' (manufacturer) . On the reverse it is stamped with inspection marks. The bayonet is fitted with its original 1st Type hook quillon cross guard which incorporates a muzzle ring. The wood grips are undamaged secured with two screw bolts. Both grips are impressed with inspection marks. The pommel is stamped 'NK' (Norfolk Regiment) above R540. It is complete with its original 1st Pattern leather scabbard with steel locket and internal chape. All the stitching and leather of the scabbard are intact.

British L1A3 Bayonet, With Straight Cross Guard, Short Fullers & Scabbard. Bayo 112 - Bayo 112
A British L1A3 bayonet with straight cross guard, short fullers and scabbard made in Enfield in 1967. During the mid 1960's it was found that the long blade fuller which extended almost to the crossguard, resulted in a weakness in the blade and made the tempering process difficult. As a result, the length of the fuller was reduced to about 4.2 inches, terminating about 1.4inches forward of the crossguard. As a result the blade is heavier, without tapering in thickness towards the point. On later models the crossguard is not waisted but straight. This bayonet has a straight cross guard and short fuller. The bayonet has a blackened pommel with recessed release stud. The grips are blackened steel and are both stamped with "L1A3 9600257 D67" indicating it was made at Enfield in 1967. They are secured with two recessed steel rivets. The polished steel blade has a short fuller with single edge. It measures 8" long, 12" overall. The ricasso is stamped with "D 67". The scabbard is blackened and in excellent undamaged condition. (see page 261, last paragraph in Skennerton's British & Commonwealth Bayonet Book). The price includes Uk delivery. Bayo 112
