    The SB & N marking is probably Sanderson Brothers and Newbould who made Patt 1888, Patt 1903 and Patt 1907 bayonets.

    If the other marking is N & D, then that according to Ian Skennerton in his book on markings is an abbreviation for Notts & Derby - a county association established following the introduction of the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act 1907.

    Can't find anything for "N&I"

    Regards

    I agree with this, except that 3N&D is actually 3rd Battalion, Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire) Regiment . It's the actual regiment, not the County Assiciation.
