Wilkinson 1907 Pattern, 1941 Dated Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 255 - BAYO 255
This is a scarce 1917 pattern bayonet made by Wilkinson during the Second World War. These bayonets were issued to all the services from 1936 onwards and this is one of the batch ordered by the war office on the 15th July 1941. The blade is marked with 1907 W.S.C. over 10 42 (October 1942). These bayonets are not to be confused with the bayonets that Wilkinson were contracted to make for the Lanchester machine gun as those carry the wartime code for Wilkinson of S 294. This bayonet is one of only 41,907 made before the Lanchester machine gun bayonet contract for which 87,600 were produced and is therefore a very scarce in the 1907 run of bayonets.

This is an early matching numbers M1886 1st pattern Lebel bayonet with a white metal hilt, quillon and a round press stud. These press studs were changed to a flatter oval style in 1893. In 1915 it was decreed that all future M1886 bayonets were to be made without the quillon. Some earlier bayonets were also retrospectively modified by having the quillon removed. This bayonet retains its original hooked quillon. The bayonet had an unusual cruciform blade which was prone to breaking so the final modification place took place in 1935 when the blades were shortened to 335mm. This bayonet has the original 520mm length blade which is complete and undamaged. The bayonet has he early pre-1893 round press stud as opposed to the later flat version. The blade retains its original needle sharp tip and the quillon carries the number 57634. This is repeated on the scabbard frog strap. The scabbard is completely free from dents.

Maclean was attached to the Royal Flying Corps in 1915, and after initial training as a pilot was posted for operational service with the newly formed 25 (Fighter) Squadron. Operating out of Auchel, and flying F.E.2b’s, Maclean was credited with the destruction of an enemy aircraft, 22 June 1916, ‘Capt. C. T. Maclean and Lt Barraclough, in a F.E. of 25 Sqn, attacked a Roland biplane east of Lens at 8 a.m. while on patrol duty at 10,000 feet. The F.E. dived at the Roland, and following it down to 5,000 fired two drums at close range. At 5,000 feet the German dived perpendicularly, the F.E. overshooting it. Subsequently Capt Maclean saw the Roland on the ground.’ (Royal Flying Corps, Communiques 1915-1916, Edited by C. Cole refers) Maclean commanded 11 Squadron (F.E.2b’s and Bristol Fighters) at Le Hameau and Bellevue, 1916-17.

At the start of the German Spring Offensive, 21 March 1918, Maclean held the overall command of the Tenth (Army) Wing’s 141 Camels, Bristol Fighters, D.H.4’s and S.E.5a’s at Bruay.
