The pommel is stamped ‘4CT’ to the 4th Battalion Connaught Rangers (The Connaught Rangers "The Devil's Own" was an Irish Line Regiment of the British Army originally raised in 1793 as the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers), which gained a reputation both for indiscipline and for its prowess as shock troops and streetfighters with the bayonet while serving under the Duke of Wellington during the Peninsular War in Spain. The Regiment was involved in most of the major actions of WW1 including Ypres & The Somme. Some 2,500 Connaught Rangers were killed during WW1). The pommel is also stamped with weapon number ‘694’.

British 1960 Dated L1A3 Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 321. - BAYO 321
The L1A3 bayonet was introduced into British service during the late 1950s to eliminate the protruding press stud used on the L1A1 and L1A2 designs.
