Description

~ Mounted WWI 1907 Relic Pattern Hooked Quillion Bayonet From Galipoli ~

An emotive relic from the Great War.

This is the early variant of the 1907 pattern bayonet for the SMLE with the rare hooked quillion.

It is mounted on a piece of timber with a bullet hole.

The brass plaque reads...

"Found In The Galipoli Peninsula Turkey"

~ 1907 Hooked Quillion Bayonet ~

The bayonet featured a hooked lower quillion, intended to be used to trap and snap enemy bayonets when grappling, this was later deemed impractical and replaced with a simpler design from 1913, often unit armourers subsequently removed the hooked quillion when the bayonet went for repair, although there is no evidence that this was officially directed.

~ Dimensions ~

The bayonet is 52.0 cm (20.5 inches) in length with a 39.5 cm (15,5 inches) blade.

The wooden mount is 55.0 cm (21.5 inches) in length with a 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) height.

~ Condition ~

Obviously, a dug up, the bayonet is heavily pitted but nicely conserved.

~ Postage ~

UK postage is £15, international at cost. It can also be inspected in the shop.
