New bayonet.........

Post by DuncaninFrance » Wed Jul 20, 2022 11:21 am

...........almost!

Finally found the No.4 Mk1 No:9 Bayonet that I bought 14 months ago and couldn't find in the moving boxes.
Dated 1949, the year of my birth (or issue!)

I've got two Enfield bayonets. One is the spike war expedient. No. 4 MKII stamped on it.

The other one made for the MKIII. Dated 1943. Don't remember where I got it. Think it came with one of my milsurp rifle purchases.
