British Army Sappers & Miners 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback Bayonet / Sidearm Regiment Marked MSC (Medical Staff Corps) & Scabbard. Sn 15832 - 15832
British Sappers and Miners Units adopted an oval barrel rifle in 1855 and produced their own distinctive bayonet with a Falchion or pipe backed blade. The bayonet & leather scabbard had brass fittings. After 1857 the Sappers and Miners were renamed the Engineers so the blade is sometimes called the Engineers Bayonet. After removal from Engineer service they became a side arm particularly for the Medical Corps (the Medical Corps was formed in the Crimea war era. In 1857 the Medical Staff Corps was reorganised into the Army Hospital Corps, although it reverted back to its former name in 1884 and by 1898 there were two distinct organisations within the Army Medical Services, the Medical Staff Corps and the Medical Staff . These two separate organisations were reorganised into one Corps, the Royal Army Medical Corps, by Royal Warrant on 23rd June 1898. With the formation of the RAMC medical officers were granted the same rank structure as the rest of the British Army). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has the correct pipeback blade which is clean & measures 24", brass crossguard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with retaining screw and push button which works as it should. The pommel is stamped ‘MSC’ to the Medical Staff Corps and dated ‘5/1885’ (May 1885) indicating issue to the MSC after Engineer use. The pommel also has weapon number ‘3172’. The ricasso is stamped with inspection marks on both sides and on the back (all illustrated. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade, see page 122 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). Its original black stippled grips are undamaged and secured by rivets. The bayonet measures 29 ¼” overall and is complete with its original leather scabbard with brass locket and large brass shoe chape. The leather has some service wear but the leather and stitching are intact. Price for this rare original 1855 Pattern Lancaster Bayonet with scabbard includes UK delivery. Sn 15832
