WILKINSON / PALL MALL P.1907 bayonets

I know, I know, I know - but it would mean raiding the holiday money...

 

This is a Wilkinson thread, I know, but this is the pommel marking for what is an Enfield 1/12... It reads "6.N.? There are not too many regiments it might be - 6th Loyal North Lancs seems to fit best... Granddad was in the 5th...

Julian,

Can I see an F, after the N?

I wondered... I have opened a parallel thread - see https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/270348-unit-marked-for-6-north-lancs-p1907/

 

 

Unless I have missed something, then the only possible unit markings would be "6.N.L" for Loyal North Lancs, or "6.N.STF" for North Staffs - and I can't see a squiggle there for an 'S'...

By chance (hey, free on a Saturday of kids and univ, class work for a chance!) I stumbled on an old thread by Lancs Fusilier: https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/159958-dating-1897-pattern-infantry-swords/?tab=comments#comment-1551357 in which he states that somebody has the Wilkinson archives! And he gives the contact details!!!!! wonder if an answer to the  WILKINSON / PALL MALL  conundrum might be found there? I don't have the time (or the spare cash for whatever fee!) to check it out... Anybody?

I thought I’d post my new find, and ask if anyone could identify the maker of the scabbed please. It had an inspection  stamp on the leather but it has mostly worn away. 

 The grip stamps are fairly clear, most on the blade, especially on the one side, are rubbed. There is a crescent shape mark on the handle but it may be damage.
