British No 9 Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 539 - BAYO 539
This is a scarce British No 9 bayonet made at Poole Arsenal in 1949. Poole only made the No 9 bayonet for 2 years between 1947 and 1949 when Enfield took over production between 1949 and 1956 with a later batch as late as 1962. Figures for Poole production of the No 9 have not been found but Skennerton suggests a figure of less than 200,000. This example is marked on the ledge of the socket just forward of the muzzle hole with A P in a circle and 1949. Enfield marked all of their production on the left side of the socket. Many of the No 9 bayonets were issued to the navy as they retained the No 4 rifle for some time after the introduction of the L1A1 rifle and bayonet. The scabbard is a No 5 Mk 1 and the frog is a standard pattern ’37 webbing version. See Skennerton item B302 on pages 246. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 539

British 1888 Mark II. Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 519 - BAYO 519
This is a 1888 Mark II pattern bayonet manufactured by Sanderson. The ricasso of the blade is marked SANDERSON SHEFFIELD 11 01 (November 1901) and Crown ER (Edward Regina). The other side carries a broad arrow and an Enfield inspection stamp. Sanderson and Mole only produced small quantities of this bayonet, followed by Wilkinson who produced only 108,000. The mark II version was only produced between 1899 and 1903 with Enfield making the majority. The scabbard is the mk I in black leather with steel chape and top mount. There appears to be a contemporary ‘ANTWERP 1914’ cut into the front leather of the scabbard. See Skennerton pages 170 – 173, item B215. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 519

SOLD SOLD (08/07) British 1913 Pattern Mark 1Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 517 - BAYO 514
This is a 1913 Pattern Mark 1 bayonet which was introduced into British service on the 21st June 1916 along with its parent rifle, the pattern 1914. Vickers were originally contracted to supply both the P 1914 rifle and the P1913 bayonet but failed to meet their commitment. Contracts were then arranged with Winchester and Remington in the U.S.A. to produce both the rifle and bayonet. Although early trials rifles and bayonets were originally in .276” calibre the outbreak of WW1 ensured that the P1914 rifle was made in .303 calibre. This example is marked on the ricasso with 1913ss over 2 17 (February 1917) and Remington within a circle. The other side carries a British broad arrow over an 2 British inspection stamps. This example has the two vertical grooves scored into them to differentiate the bayonet from the 1907 pattern. The scabbard is the standard No1 Mk1 with a tear drop frog stud. See Skennerton item B239 on pages 188 – 195. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 514

Imperial German WW1 1915 Dated Old Pattern Model 1898/05aA (aA alter Art) Sawback Bayonet Complete With Steel Scabbard. BAYO 516 - BAYO 516
This is a 1915 dated 1898/05aA ‘butcher’ bayonet with no flash guard and extended muzzle ring ‘ears’. The old pattern bayonets were issued without flash guards but early on in the war it was found that the muzzle flash from the K98 rifle was causing the wooden grips to char or even be blown off. It was then decided to fit a steel flash guard along the top edge of the hilt. This example pre-dates the fitting of this flash guard and also as the longer ears or extensions of the crossguard. The blade carries the Simson and Co. Suhl trademark and the spine carries a crowned W over 15. Most of Simpson and Co’s production took place in 1915 as they then concentrated on the production of rifles as did Haenel and Schilling. See German Bayonets, The Models 98/02 and 98/05 by Anthony Carter, pages 86 and 87. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 516

SOLD SOLD (28/07) British 1913 Pattern Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 514 - BAYO 514
This is a 1913 Pattern bayonet which was introduced into British service on the 21 st June 1916 along with its parent rifle, the pattern 1914. Vickers were originally contracted to supply both the P 1914 rifle and the P1913 bayonet but failed to meet their commitment. Contracts were then arranged with Winchester and Remington in the U.S.A. to produce both the rifle and bayonet. This example is marked on the blade with 1913 over 7 17 (July 1917 date) and Remington within a circle. The other side carries a British broad arrow over an inspection stamp. Although the rifles were never front line issue, they were used for training and became synonymous with the Home Guard in W.W.2. This example has the two vertical grooves scored into them to differentiate the bayonet from the 1907 pattern. The grips are impressed with the name J. PREESCOT impressed into them in three places and this is presumably the Home Guard man it was issued to. The scabbard is the standard No1 Mk1 with a tear drop frog stud with a pattern 37 webbing frog. See Skennerton item B239 on pages 192 – 194. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 514

British No7 Mk1L Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 511 - BAYO 511
This is a British No7 Mk1L bayonet with brown tufnol grips. The No7 bayonet was only approve for land service hence the suffix L to the bayonet designation No7 Mk1l. This is stamped crisply on the blade ricasso. These bayonets were mainly issued to the Guards and occasional use with the Mk5 Sten gun. The bayonet has a swivelling pommel which allowed it to be fixed to the No4 rifle and the Sten sub machine gun.

British 1907 Pattern Siamese Contract Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 510 - BAYO 510
This is a British 1907 pattern bayonet which was part of a contract of 10,000 SMLE rifles and bayonets supplied to Siam in 1920 by B.S.A.. The bayonets were ex-service models with the original markings ground off and re- finished with a Royal ‘Wild Tiger Corps’ emblem dn script which included the rifle number. The Wild Tiger Corps were the personal bodyguard of King Rame VI who only reigned for 1919 to 1925 and due to the low original issue these bayonet have become quite scarce. Some bayonet scabbards were altered by replacing the original leather body with sheet steel but this example retains its original scabbard. See Skennerton Item B13 on Page 381.

British 1907 Pattern Bayonet And Scabbard. BAYO 509 - BAYO 509
This is an unusual Pattern 1907 bayonet in that it was issued to the 7th Middlesex Regiment in the First World War and subsequently had been re-furbished many times ending up in an American M17 scabbard probably for use by the Home Guard in WW2. The blade is marked with a crown over G.R. followed by 1907 and the date of manufacture (1 18 or 11 18). The makers name of SANDRSON is below this. The blade also carries the war department broad arrow and many inspection stamps together with the dates of re-furbishment. The pommel carries 7 MX and 350 denoting bayonet number 350 of the 7th Battalion Middlesex Regiment. The 7th were a territorial battalion which fought in France from the 13th March 1915 until the end and were involved in many major battles.

These bayonets were converted by India from full length to the shortened version in the 1950s. This example has Mk1++ stamped over the crowned G.R, on one side and F.R.56 on the other side of the blade. This denotes a factory repair in 1956. The blade has a false edge with the fuller running to the tip and has ben re-blued. The grips have an Indian inspection on one side. The bayonet is contained in its shortened Mk1 scabbard and the frog is a standard pattern 37 webbing version. See Skennerton item 152 on page 348 for an identical bayonet.
