Title Bayonet for the short Lee Enfield, model 1907
Nationality British
Period c 1907
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is marked on the pommel '8 S F // 922' for 8th Bn Royal Scots Fusiliers, which went to France in Sept 1915, Salonica in Nov 1915, Turkey in Nov 1918 and finally the Caucasus is Jan 1919. It is the modified form with the quillon removed and was the standard bayonet for the 1903 model short Lee Enfield rifle.


This bayonet has been somewhat overcleaned, but it has its original brown leather scabbard with barely visible issue stamps on the leatherwork. The blade is nicely marked Enfield and issue dated July 1915. It has a clean set of walnut grips.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.

The bayonet arrived safe and sound this morning. It is absolutely magnificent. I am thrilled to bits with it. Thanks for all the interest you have shown.

My very best wishes, and thank you, very sincerely, once again.
