    Hi all

    Just wondering if anyone knows what type of bayonet this is. It was given to my dad by my nephew who found it on a rubbish dump.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's a British 1907 Sword Bayonet for the SMLE (Short Magazine Lee-Enfield) Rifle (Later called the No 1 Rifle). The markings on the ricasso show that this is one of the 10,000 rifles and bayonets ordered by the government of Siam in 1920 and manufactured by BSA. They are known as 'Siamese Contract 1907 Bayonets' or often 'Wild Tiger Corps Enfields'.

    An interesting article on them is here: The Lee-Enfields of Thailand's Wild Tiger Corps
