The bandoliers passed over each shoulder, joined and were then attached to a belt by strap and buckle. At the join is a frog containing an excellent example of a French 1886/93/16 Epee bayonet for the WW1 Lebel Rifle. It has a brass hilt and no quillon and a 20.5" cruciform blade. In its steel scabbard and all in great condition. The bayonet was worn across the chest. The leather used was dyed dark red. The bandolier has 5 pockets for ammunition. the buckle and compartment studs are brass.
