    Default Pattern 1907 Bayonet-Chapman

    Allow me to introduce myself. Hello! My real name is Brian and I've been fascinated with WW1 and WW2 history for quite some time!
    My Grandfather was a pilot in training (Kelly Airfield, TX) during WW1 however the war ended and he left the Army. Trained in Jennys!
    I live in Washington State in the United States.


    Please assist me in identifying this bayo, the markings (particularly in the 3rd picture) and matching the correct scabbard with this bayonet that I recently was given by a friend.
    I understand that finding an era-correct scabbard might be difficult. This bayo came with no scabbard unfortunately.

    Thank you!
    Brian

    Hi and firstly welcome to the forum mate..its best to post all pics on here. Scabbards are available for this bayonet on ebay, the teardrop' ones are the early ones the round later. Yours has a clearance hole drilled in it, meaning it was in use after 1916..the marking in the third photo ill have to research when i get home,but it is where a lot of SOS sold out of service marks are

    Gday Brian, welcome to the forum, I would say the marking in the third pic looks like a Canadian marking,( an arrow inside a C) which would mean the bayonet was used in Canadian service. I have seen other Canadian bayonets with similar markings

    Not sure it's actually a Canadian Arsenals marking as such, it looks like a Canadian Government ownership mark, arrow in a C, bit like the British Broad Arrow. The Canadian Arsenals mark is a post WWII marking of an A inside the C.

    Nice bayonet by the way!
