This is a WWII 1917 pattern bayonet with the WWII pattern scabbard of olive green plastic.

With the aid of DuPont, Remington built the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (named Lake City Arsenal initially) and Denver Ordnance ammunition plants, and three more plants later on, including the Lowell Ordnance Plant. Though the plants belonged to the US government, Remington was asked to oversee their operation) within a circle on one side and an eagle with a flaming grenade over U.S. on the other.

*Very Rare* British Volunteer Sawback Bayonet & Part Scabbard. 20327. - 20327
This is a very rare volunteer bayonet made by ‘Solingen Trade’ for various colonial Governments, such as Australia & South Africa. These bayonets were not necessarily intended for the Martini Henty rifle. Early volunteer Martini rifles had heavier barrels than the service Martini which explains the 19-20mm muzzle ring diameter (MRDS’s) of many of these volunteer patterns. The blade carries the Kings head mark of ‘Weyersberg’ (The history of the company Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie (W.K.C.) in Solingen began in the early middle-ages, when the trademark “Kingshead“ was registered by the bladesmith Johannes Wundes in 1560.This trademark is one of the oldest registered and is still in use today) and the crossguard carries an ‘L78’. The blade is 45 ¾ cm with a M.R.D of 20.2mm. See Skennerton item B190 pages 148 & 149. The price includes UK delivery. 20327.

British 1853 Pattern Socket Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 570. - BAYO 570
This is a nice ‘1853’ pattern socket bayonet and scabbard. The bayonet was listed as consisting of fewer components-these being the bayonet body, locking ring, locking ring screw and scabbard, but the previous bayonet with which it was being compared was not specified. The first patterns of the new bayonet had an iron socket and steel elbow and blade, whereas the British socket bayonet normally had an iron socket and elbow with a steel blade. The length overall is 20.5” with a blade length of 17” and a socket length of 3”. The Muzzle ring diameter (M.R.D) is 20mm. The scabbard is the later pattern (1853-1860) with teardrop frog stud. The leather, stitching and metalwork is in excellent condition *two pins absent to the rear of the chape*. See Skennerton item B145 pages 105-109. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 570.

WWI British ‘1913’ Sword, Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 767 - BAYO 767
This is a great example of the ‘P13’ bayonet, which although designated ‘P13’, fit the ‘P14’ rifle and was not introduced until ‘1916’. It is marked to the blade with ‘1913’ over ‘9’17’ (August 1917) and ‘Remington’ in a circle. The other side of the blade carries British inspection stamps. The blade is in good condition and only showing minor signs of wear. The vast majority of these bayonets were made in America by ‘Remington and Winchester’ with only a few made in England by ‘Vickers’. The near perfect wooden grips have two grooves on either side to distinguish it from the ‘P1907’. The scabbard is also an American made version with steel locket and chape, interchangeable with the ‘P’07’. The leather stitching and furniture on the scabbard are all in good condition and has been chromed presumably for parade/dress purposes. A very nice collectable ‘1913’ bayonet and scabbard in very good condition with some of its black paint missing. See ‘Skennerton’ item B239, pages 192-194. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 767.

*Rare* Original WWI Dated ’07 Pattern’ Bayonet & Scabbard Issued to the ‘TJFF 702’ TransJordan Frontier Force which is Derived from ‘Lawrence of Arabia’s Arab Legion. 20183. - 20183
The Transjordan Frontier Force (TJFF) was established at Sarafand on 1 April 1926 with a cadre drawn from the Arab Legion and quickly grew to three cavalry squadrons, each of 120 men each, and an infantry unit. Its first commander was Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick William Bewsher. Other units, such as a camel squadron and mechanised units were subsequently added. The TJFF would be equipped in a conventional manner, with modern weapons, whilst the Arab Legion would, initially, remain a traditional force, looser in structure and without training in technology. Accordingly, the Arab Legion transferred its inventory of machine guns, artillery, and radios. This original 07 patt bayonet has been polished to dress parade brightness and was issued to ‘TJFF 702’ which is clearly stamped to the pommel. The blade is very clean and stamped to one side crown over 1907 – ’12 17’ (December 1917) above the maker Wilkinson (Wilkinson Sword- The company was founded as a manufacturer of guns made in Shotley Bridge in County Durham, by Henry Nock in London in 1772) the other side of the blade carries a broad arrow and inspection stamps. The leather scabbard is in good condition with all of the leather, stitching and metalwork in place. This bayonet and scabbard warrants further investigation. The price includes UK delivery. 20183.
