British 1907 Pattern Bayonet & Very Rare Double Seamed Scabbard & Frog - BAYO 644
This is a 1907 pattern bayonet which has been converted for drill purposes and is marked thus ‘D.P.’ on the pommel end. The blade is marked crown over GR 1907 and EFD (Enfield). The other side carries a broad arrow and a feint inspection stamp. However this bayonet is contained in its extremely rare double seamed scabbard marked to the rear with H.G.R. 15 denoting manufacture by Hipburn Gale and Ross in1915. Thos pattern was approved pm 29/9/15 but Skennerton states that in 1920 the contract was cancelled as ‘NO SCABBARDS OF THIS PATTERN HAVE BEEN MADE’. There is no doubt that samples or test runs were made as some have been noted with British contractor’s names. This is a genuine British made example and not a later Australian example made at Lithgow in the 1920s. See Skennerton, pages 194 and 195 for scabbard information. The bayonet is complete with its correct 1908 pattern webbing frog. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 644

SOLD SOLD (11/04) Scarce No.4 Ceremonial Spike Bayonet - BAYO 634
This is a scarce ceremonial spike bayonet as used by Britain, Australia and Canada with a ball welded to the tip of the blade.

This example has 39 on the socket together with a broad arrow over D. See Skennerton item B271 page 224 and item C12 on page 307 for illustrations. For obvious reasons, the bayonet does not have a scabbard but for the collector of British and Commonwealth bayonets it is an essential bayonet for a complete collection. Price includes UK delivery.
