    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. 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.
