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 Suvla bay. The Battalion were amongst the last to leave and only a few survived. This is a rare, near mint hook quillion 1907 pattern bayonet for SMLE rifles manufactured in September 1911 by Enfield. The ricasso is marked '1907 (Pattern), 'EFD (Enfield) '09 ‘11(Date) & 'King’s Crown'. The reverse has inspection stamps. The blade is clean. The wood slabs are undamaged. The pommel is crisply stamped with Regiment mark ‘4SWB’ to the 4th Battalion South Wales Borderers. It is in its original 1st type brown leather scabbard with correct steel locket and internal chape. The leather is impressed with small Enfield inspection marks and WD arrow. The scabbard is fitted with an original WW1 1914 pattern webbing frog with rear helve carrier strap. The rear of the frog has faint ink stamp which appear to be ‘HG’ (manufacturer) and WW1 date ‘17’ (1917). All leather, material & stitching of the scabbard and frog are intact. The price for this rare bayonet to a Battalion that fought with distinction at Gallipoli includes UK delivery. BAYO 202
