    Hello Guys,
    Dropped off the Radar for a while but still been busy collecting.
    Here are three bayonets I have recently acquired and I have to say I have been looking for them for some time.
    1 is a Whitworth. The blade is not the best but it is origional and in it's Scabbard.
    2 and 3 are both Lancaster Bayonets. I had one without a scabbard for about three years and then two popped up about 3 weeks apart. As you can see they are in pretty good condition.
    I mentioned these bayonets to a friend of mine who said he had the Rifles for them and he was selling them. Guess what? He doesn't own the Rifles anymore. I had to sell a couple of bits to buy them but the Whitworth is a British Army Trials Rifle with a lovely Hexagonal Bore.Click image for larger version.

    Sorry Guys,
    I can't seem to get the photos in the right order.

    Some nice, hard to find bayonets you have there! The 2 Lancasters are just about worth as much as the rifle. Do you know what the regimental marking stands for?

    Hello Jim,
    I think it is Middlesex Engineer Volunteers, I can't find out what the last digit stands for.

    Very nice collection. I know what you mean by photo's getting out of order. Not sure what causes this. I love the Lancaster bayonets! Would love to add one to my collection. Best regards...
