Late example in zinc finish, with a nickel ring and a faded short length of original ribbon. This was the basic gallantry award for behind the lines action for non-combatant personnel, viz army nurses, clerical staff, etc. There is no maker mark.

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.
I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
