A 1915 issued Enfield (EFD) bayonet with the correct 'teardrop' scabbard..sorry im not sure on the paint
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

Here's a field telephone set for colour comparison
ok here's one I forgot I have, much less paint that yours has
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).
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
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.
