When you see pictures of British troops, it looks like they have two bayonets. What is the second piece of equipment behind the Bayonet? Vaughn

Can you post a picture of what you mean? If the bayonet is on the rifle it is probably the scabbard on the belt

no, it looks like two scabbards. Is it a wooden handle for a tool? Vaughn
