These bayonets were converted by India from full length to the shortened version in the 1950s.

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. This is an interestingly marked bayonet that has seen a lot of action. See Skennerton Item B235 on Pages 186 to 192. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 509

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. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 510

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. The blade is the standard bowie shape as used on the No5 jungle carbine and successive marks including the No9 and L1A1 series. The scabbard is the standard No5 Mk2 with a brass mouthpiece and the frog is an unmarked pattern 37 webbing version. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 511

India Pattern Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 512 - BAYO 512
This is an Indian conversion of an original pattern 1907 bayonet by shortening the blade and giving it a false edge at the tip. The fuller runs through to the tip and many of these were converted during the war before the later un-fullered blade versions were introduced. Skennerton shows a similar one as item 152 on page 348. However, many were converted in the 1950s and this is likely to be one of these as the false edge has more of a pronounced bowie shape. There are feint markings on the blade but all the metal parts have been polished or chromed, possibly for parade use. The scabbard is a shortened P 1907 version and the frog is a Pattern ’37 webbing one which is dated 1942. This is an interesting variation for the India pattern bayonet collector. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 512

WW2 India Pattern No1 MkIII* Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 513 - BAYO 513
This is a nice and crisply marked No1 MkIII* India pattern bayonet. The blade carries the crown over GRI and MKII over 13 44 (December 1944 date) and R.F.I.. This bayonet was therefore made at the Rifle Factory Ishapore in December 1944. The bayonet has the squared pommel and parallel tang and grips which was a feature of these later bayonets, done in order to; save on machining time. The bayonet has an 11.9 inch blade with a false edge to the tip and carried several inspectors stamps. Many of these bayonets are marked on the blade as MK II when in fact the official designation was No 1 MK III*. The bayonet is contained in its original long No1 MKI scabbard with a tear drop frog stud. The frog is a P ’37 webbing version. See Skennerton item 156 on pages 346 – 356, in particular his comments of page 350 for items 155 and 156. This is a nice India pattern variation bayonet. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 513

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

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
