1907 Dated British WD Army Sappers & Miners 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback Sword Bayonet, Scabbard & Hiatt Birmingham Leather Frog. BAYO 500 - BAYO 500
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 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. Early examples had a leaf spring secured by a rivet but post 1858 the springs on these bayonets were secured by a screw. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade (see pages 121-124 and item B160 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has the correct 24”pipeback blade is clean, brass cross guard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with post 1858 retaining screw and push button which works as it should. The ricasso is dated ‘07’ (1907) and has WD inspection marks. Its original black grips are undamaged and correctly 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 is undamaged. The locket is numbered 3403. The scabbard is fitted with an original black leather frog with large belt loop and retaining strap with brass buckle. The rear of the frog is faintly impressed ‘Hiatt Birmingham’.

SOLD SOLD (22/06) British L1A4 Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 272 - BAYO 272
This is the L1A4 variant of the L1 series of bayonets. The L1A1 was adopted on the 1/3/57 quickly followed by the L1A3 ( the L1A2 was only issue in Australia)l the L1A4 pattern was sealed on 31/12/1958 but was not produced until the 1970s. The only difference is that the pommel was riveted to the tang instead of being brazed or heat shrunk like the L1A1 and L1A3 and was an alternative method for manufacturers. The main producer of the L1A4 bayonets was Hopkinsons of Sheffield and our example carries the makers logo of an ‘H’ within a diamond and 73 denoting manufacture of 1973 on the ricasso. The grips have been over painted obliterating any marks except for a D and bread arrow denoting Enfield. See Skkennerton item B324 on pages 262, 263 and 268. As the new L1A3 bayonet was introduced in 1984, the L1A4 bayonet was ws only in production for a short while and therefore are not common. This price includes UK delivery. Sn. BAYO 272
