British 1907 Pattern Bayonet By Wilkinson, Scabbard and Frog. Bayo 175 - Bayo 175
This is an original 1907 pattern bayonet for the Enfield rifle manufactured in May 1909 by Wilkinson which has had the quillon removed. In 1913, it was decided to remove the quillon from existing bayonets and new ones were to be made without. The bayonet was sealed on the 29/10/1913. This bayonet carries the Crown over "ER" (Edward Rex) over 1907 followed by "5 09" (May 1909) then the manufacturers name 'Wilkinson'. The other side is stamped with the War Department Broad Arrow and several inspection stamps. It is complete with a No 1 MK II leather scabbard with external chape and a webbing frog which is the standard 1908 pattern. (see Skennerton's Bayonet Book, B 235 page 187).

1st Type 1907 pattern bayonets with hook quillon were introduced in 1908, after 1913, ‘07’ Pattern bayonets were produced without hook quillon (see page 186 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets by Skennerton).

The pommel is stamped ‘4CT’ to the 4th Battalion Connaught Rangers (The Connaught Rangers "The Devil's Own" was an Irish Line Regiment of the British Army originally raised in 1793 as the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers), which gained a reputation both for indiscipline and for its prowess as shock troops and streetfighters with the bayonet while serving under the Duke of Wellington during the Peninsular War in Spain. The Regiment was involved in most of the major actions of WW1 including Ypres & The Somme. Some 2,500 Connaught Rangers were killed during WW1). The pommel is also stamped with weapon number ‘694’.

EXTREMELY RARE, ONE OF ONLY 634 MADE, British Victorian 1st Type Pattern 1875 Saw Back Sword Bayonet For Martini Henry Rifles & Scabbard. BAYO 170 - BAYO 170
The 1st Type Pattern 1875 bayonet is one of the rarest English bayonets for the Martini Henry series of rifles. The pattern was sealed on the 2nd March 1875 but the blade specification was the incorrect length 18” instead of the correct 20 ¼” & only 634 were made. The standard pattern with longer blade was only produced for 4 years and 5,190 were made. The 1st type is therefore very scarce as most were later converted to fit the Snider carbine (see Skennerton's book British & Commonwealth Bayonets B188, pages 147 & 148). This example which is one of the 1st type with shorter blade, one of only 634 made has the correct clean 18” saw back blade. The ricasso of the blade is crisply marked with Crown over "V.R." (Victoria Regina) and the reverse with War Dept ‘WD with arrow’ and inspection mark. The back of the blade and grip frame also have small inspection marks. The pommel carries the number 1785 (most likely armoury weapon number). The original steel mounted black leather scabbard is in excellent condition with all leather and stitching intact. The price for this extremely rare bayonet & scabbard in excellent condition includes UK delivery. BAYO 170.

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.

British 1853 Pattern Socket Bayonet and Scabbard. Bayo 143 - Bayo 143
This is a standard 1853 pattern socket bayonet with a bright triangular blade and blued socket. The blade has an inspection mark and the socket has "286" stamped at the top. The scabbard is brass mounted leather but with a round frog stud instead of the tear drop and the seam stitching at the front instead of the back or side. The bayonet fits perfectly and has obviously been with the scabbard for a long time. (see Skennerton's book, item B145 pages 105-109). The price includes Uk delivery. Bayo 143

British 1860 Sword Bayonet and Scabbard. Bayo 141 - Bayo 141
This is a pattern 1860 bayonet introduced in 1860 for the short rifle with a slightly larger Muzzle Ring Dimeter of 20.7mm. It has the Yataghan curved blade with central fuller and a steel hilt with the leaf spring secured by a screw. It has black chequered grips. The blade has the manufacturers name of "Reeves" stamped into the top but no other markings. This would suggest it is a volunteer pattern as most volunteers chose the short rifle for its accuracy and in most cases the bayonets were privately purchased from the manufacturers. (see Skennerton's book, item B153 page 116 and items B154 & 155). The scabbard is steel mounted black leather. The top of the pommel is stamped "WF II" which would suggest use by The Royal Welsh Fusiliers at some point in its life. The price includes Uk delivery. Bayo 141
