This is an early Edwardian, Lee Metford, 1888 Mark II second pattern bayonet manufactured for the British .303 calibre Enfield, Lee Metford Rifle. The Bayonet blade which is in good clean condition with original polish, is 12" in length, double edged and unfullered with a medial ridge running from the ricasso to the blade tip. The ricasso of the blade is also marked 8. 02 (manufactured August 1902) together with ER and 'Flat Top' Crown ( Edward Rex ). The reverse is nicely stamped with the broad arrow over EFD (Enfield) and an inspection stamp. The pommel carries the stamping NR.86 over 350. This translates into the Territorial Force County Association National Reserve (NR) for Warwick (86) and the bayonet number (350) The grips are of wood, held together with two brass rivets and are stamped B over TW within a circle. There is an oil clearance hole in both of the grips. The bayonet is contained in a 1903 pattern scabbard with the internal steel chape bit missing the leather frog. The scabbard is stamped to the rear with UNVTC 91. This is an unusual combination of markings which are worthy of further research to this scarce bayonet to the National Reserve.
