Remembered Today:

Pattern 1907 Bayonet Markings Question.


Michael Haselgrove

Recommended Posts

Here are photos of Merv's bayonet, which I am posting on his behalf.

His photographs show a standard British Pattern 1907 Sword Bayonet issued during September 1910, which has all the usual Pattern 1907 ricasso markings, and which somebody at some point has modified themselves including adding a serrated blade edge.

Many thanks for your response.

I have tried numerous times to include photo to this forum page but with no success. I thought my previous message had contained photo but I see it did not work.

I am afraid that my tech skills in this regard are quite hopeless. Can anyone help / advise on attaching photos please.

 

Markings are not very clear due to pitting on the blade.

 

With thanks

Merv

L.F. Many thanks for your help in identifying the bayonet. Much appreciated. 

A story behind the item for sure.

Merv,

 

Pleased to help, and yes, there could well be a story behind those serrations.

 

Regards,

LF

Was interested to see that my 8 '10 EFD has identical markings (except for the 22 reissue). Had thought that the EFD/51 was a later mark, but seemingly not. Anybody know how this mark differs from the standard one with the crown/no./E?

Cheers,

Tony
