    The paint is common for equipment used by Australia in jungle conditions eg Papua New Guinea. Have to add that WW1 bayos where reissued to the AIF in WW2

    Thx. a lot !

    In a German forum a collectors mate told me he thinks, the green painting is a sign for use of the bayonets in Pakistan, Afghanistan, or, other countries ...

    I have seen this same colour paint used on weapons: both Sten and Bren gun. These are/were on display in the Airborne Museum Oosterbeek (Arnhem).

    Cheers, Ade.

    Well to my opinion he was wrong, but I stand to be corrected. My equipment and the bayo I have matches up

    Given the numbers made, the length of service and the number of countries that have /do use the bayo and rifle, pretty much anything is possible and in more than one place and time.
