Would like some help with a m1907 Bayonet.

Hello everyone, I have a m1907 bayonet which was made in April of 1918. I was trying to find its unit markings however on the pommel there is nothing, does this indicate a fake or is it something that happend.

Hi. Not all 1907 Pattern bayonets have unit markings and they are seldom faked apart from the early hooked quillon variety. Of course posting photos would help but being made in April 1918 yours will have been manufactured straight cross guard. All the best.

Thank you NorthStaffsPOW here are some photos. Also I bought this in New Zealand if that means anything.

Looks like a good honest example - made by Sanderson.

I agree, it is a Sanderson manufactured example, and looks to be quite nice.

 

The scabbard appears to be Australian Lithgow manufactured, although more photos would be required. Probably sent to Australia, and could have seen use in NZ too.

 

Nice find, honest examples without being messed with as (dare I say) starting to dry up ;)

A lack of unit identifiers and serial numbers is relatively common for bayonets made during WW1 - armourers had better things to do!
