*Scarce* British No9 Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 285. - BAYO 285
This is a very nice British No9 bayonet consisting of a No5 Bowie blade fitted on to a No4 socket. Production of these bayonets was carried out at ‘The Royal Ordnance’ factory at Poole between ‘1947 and 1949’ and the ‘Enfield’ between ‘1949 and 1956’. Figures for Poole are probably less than 200,000 making Poole marked No9’s quite scarce. Many of these bayonets were issued to the Royal Navy as the Navy continued to use the No4 rifle for some time after the introduction of the ‘L1A1’ rifle and bayonet. The Poole markings are on the ledge on the socket, forward of the muzzle hole and consist of a ‘P’ within a circle & 1949. The scabbard is a standard No5 MkI with steel mouth piece. The blade, socket and scabbard are all in excellent condition. See ‘Skennerton’ item B302 page 246. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 285. (Box 2)

American U.S. M1 Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 270. - BAYO 270
This is an M1 bayonet that has been cut down from a ‘M1905/M1942’ bayonet. This occurred from August 1942 when it was decided that the ‘M1905 & M1924’ bayonets were too long, especially for jungle fighting. The difference between a converted ‘M1 and a newly made one is that on a converted bayonet the fullers run through to the tip as in this example. The blade is marked ‘U.C.’ (Utica Cutlery, New York) over ‘U.S.’ a flaming grenade and 1943. This example is a late production ‘M1942’ as Utica Cutlery were still making them in 1942/43 even after the new bladed shorter ‘M1’ bayonets were put into production. Its newly made ‘M7’ scabbard of olive green plastic and top mount with U.S. within flaming grenade. See ‘An Illustrated History of Bayonets’ by Martin J. Brayley pages 230 to 242.
