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.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
