    I know nothing about the first one, other than it resembles a French design. The second one is a French Lebel bayonet and getting more and more harder to find with scabbard!
    Thanks for showing, they are nice pieces.

    Regards

    The brass handle one is Lebel were used in both ww1 & ww2(German And Soviet troops like to cut them down and use as a dagger , Germans during occupation of France, Soviet during dividing Poland and later on- liberation of Poland)

    the knife -blade hooked one is Malinger -Bertie 1892(second pattern) replaced the Lebel in WW1, have no info what happens to them in ww2

    The first bayo is the Berthier M1892 knife bayo for the various Berthier carbines used by the French from the late 19th century through both WW1 and 2 and indeed well after, especially by the paramilitary police-also used by the Germans after 1940 as one of the many captured weapon types used by them-the plastic grips indicate that it's an early pattern (later grips are made of wood).

    This is the Berthier carbine M 1916 with the knife bayo M1892.
