The Famous Gallipoli Campaign, took place on the Gallipoli peninsula (Gelibolu in modern Turkey) in the Ottoman Empire between 25 April 1915 and 9 January 1916. The campaign resulted in massive loss of lives and casualties for British and allied forces. The South Wales Borderers took part in the campaign and the 4th Battalion lost 400 Officers and men out of 775 that landed at Gallipoli. The Battalion fought with distinction throughout the campaign and were given the honour of providing the rear guard in the evacuation of Sulva beach. They were evacuated in January 1916. Whist there the Division were awarded 2 Victoria Crosses. The Battalion were amongst the last to leave and only a few of the Battalion survived. This is a rare, near mint hook quillion 1907 pattern bayonet for SMLE rifles manufactured in September 1911 by Enfield.

British X2 E1 Trials Bayonet, Scabbard and Webbing Frog. Bayo 222 - Bayo 222
This is an X2 E1 Trials bayonet. The bayonet is nicely plated, possibly for ceremonial purposes. The pommel incorporates the thumb release catch which works smoothly. The grips are slab wood, secured with two screw bolts. The tang is stamped with "X2 E1 7896". The flash hider prongs have been removed, again most probably for ceremonial purposes. The blade is the original length of 7.9" and not one of the shortened ones. However, the bayonet is contained in a No 5 MKII scabbard as opposed to the X1 E1 Belgian type. This was how the bayonet arrived in our passion and we find no reference to this variation in Skennerton's. The frog is green webbing and is in as new condition. The plating and conversion all looks professional and leads us to believe that this is a scarce prototype or trials version. It is worthy of further research. The price includes UK delivery.

SOLD SOLD SOLD ENGRAVED, WW1 BRING BACK, 1917 Dated German M 1898/05 (S98/05) 'Butcher' Bayonet By Pack-Ohliger & Co Solingen & Scabbard Contemporarily Marked 'In Rememberance Of Ypres’ & ‘Souvenir Of Passhendael (Passchendaele) Ridge'. Sn 12946 - 12946
The Battle of Passchendaele, also known as the Third Battle of Ypres, was a major campaign of the First World War, fought by the Allies against the German Empire. The battle took place on the Western Front, from July to November 1917, for control of the ridges south and east of the Belgian city of Ypres in West Flanders .This is an excellent original 1917 dated WW1 M 1898/05 bayonet captured at Passchendaele & engraved by the British Soldier who took it. According to Tony Carter in his book ‘German Bayonets’, models 98/02 & 98/05 engraved versions, such as this one, are very rare. He states that engravings on captured bayonets were professionally applied most likely after the return home of the British Soldier who captured it. This example is contemporarily professionally engraved ‘In Rememberance Of Ypres’ on the scabbard & ‘Souvenir Of Passhendael Ridge’ on the blade. The blade is clearly stamped by the manufacturer ' Pack-Ohliger & Co Solingen’ at the ricasso and the back of the blade stamped with the Imperial German 'W' Wilhelm ordnance stamp with date '17' (1917). Pack-Ohliger & Co only made the S98/05 pattern bayonets between 1916 & 1917. It has nice undamaged grooved wood grips. It's steel scabbard is also decorated with an engraved and coloured Prussian stand of arms with a sword & wreath above. Examples of Pack-Ohliger S98/05 bayonets are scarce and together with the engraving makes this a desirable piece. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12946

British 1871 Pattern Reproduction Elcho Saw Back Bayonet. Sn 12916 - 12916
In 1870 a radical design of British sword bayonet was offered for trial, designed by Lord Elcho. The blade was a heavy bulbous pattern and was designed as a multi purpose tool for chopping and cutting. The bayonet was approved on 3rd June 1871 and met with favourable results (see skennerton page 392 and 393 item R7). These bayonets are rare. This is a C1970’s made, quality reproduction British Elcho bayonet. This piece would fit into any collection until a rare original could be found and afforded. The ricasso is stamped with what appears to be the Alex Coppel Solingen trademark (illustrated in image 2). It has a 20” bulbous blade with saw back and fullers. It measures 25 ½” overall. The black chequered grips are undamaged. The cross guard has a muzzle ring and the pommel has a release button which works as it should. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12916
