Title SMLE bayonet, 1907 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1917
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the standard British service bayonet of WW1. The original 1907 pattern bayonet had a hooked quillon, subsequently removed by official order in October 1913 and no longer made thereafter. It has an issue date of 2/17 at the forte.

This bayonet is maked marked for J.A. Chapman of Woodside Lane, Sheffield, but the mark is partially illegible. Chapman made some 300,000 SMLE bayonets in WW1, from a total UK production of some five million.

It would appear to have a Remington scabbard (RE punch) for a P13/14 bayonet.

The grips are in good shape and most of the factory blue remains on the hilt.
