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.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!
