*Scarce* Pattern 1907 Mangrovite Arsenal Bayonet - later used by ‘SAP’ South African Police and Scabbard. 20565:5. - 20565:5
The ricasso is stamped 3 ’42 (Mar 1942) and also stamped with Crowned proof marks, a broad arrow and a bend test X mark to one side and M.A. (Mangrovite Arsenal-Mangrovite Belting Ltd, Australia) 1907 to the other. The pommel is stamped with SAP (South African Police) The South African Police were the successors to the police forces of the Cape Colony, the Natal Colony, the Orange River Colony, and the Transvaal Colony in law enforcement in South Africa. Proclamation 18 formed the South African Police on 1 April 1913 with the amalgamation of the police forces of the four old colonies after the founding of the Union of South Africa in 1910. The first Commissioner of Police was Colonel Theo G Truter with 5,882 men under his command. The SAP originally policed cities and urban areas, while the South African Mounted Riflemen, a branch of the Union Defence Force, enforced the state's writ in rural areas. During World War I, the SAP took over the Riflemen's jurisdiction, and most Riflemen personnel were transferred to the SAP by the end of the 1910s. By 1926, the South African Mounted Riflemen were disbanded and their duties were taken over by the South African Police. The scabbard is leather and is stamped M.G.R.T s and broad arrow. The blade is clean and the wooden grips only have very minor signs of service use. The scabbard is solid, the stitching and metalwork are all intact. The price includes UK delivery. 20565:5.

*U.S. Model ‘1917’ Remington Bayonet and Scabbard. 20565:3. - 20565:3
This is a nice clean ‘P1917’ bayonet made in ‘WWII’ for the ‘P17 30-06’ rifle. It can be differentiated from the ‘P13’ which it resembles by the markings on the blade. This example is marked to the blade with ‘1917’ over Remington in a circle, meaning manufacture by ‘Remington’ (founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington (as E. Remington and Sons) in Ilion, New York, it was one of the oldest gun makers in the US and claimed to be the oldest factory in the US that still made its original product) who made over 2 million bayonets. The other side of the blade carries the flaming grenade and eagles head over ‘U, S’. and inspection marks. The grips are wooden *with age related marks* with two grooves cut across them which is where it resembles the ‘P13’ and was interchangeable with the ‘P13’ except for the ‘P17’ rifle being 30.06 instead of the British .303. The scabbard which is showing signs of use is the standard American ‘P17’ version with belt hooks attached. These bayonets were often issued to the Home guard in WWII. See ‘Skennerton’ item B289 page 236. A scarce piece, for the collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. 20565:3. (Box 1)
