    Default No4 MkII bayonet

    Hi mates i just found this nice No4 MkII bayonet at the web.I know that scabbard was made by a UK company,but the bayonet itself has the initials SNA on one side and the No4 MkII* on the other side( the asterisk is as just the seller listed the item).Can it be a UK made bayonet as well?Many Thanks

    I can't see the 'SNA' makers mark in this list :, but if you post pictures someone more in the know may have some idea.

    Yep, it appears to have been made in Sheffield, only about 45 minute drive from where I live. Definately UK made

    I have a No.4 MKII bayonet but mine was made a long branch I believe, I'd have to check next time I'm home.

    I found a No4 Mk2 Bayonet, Scabbard & Frog and was interested in finding out more so thank you Moshemotom, i have just found out that it could be Canadian due to the letter B on it, but i am somewhat not convinced. Was a letter B used by anyone else?

    Also on the Scabbard there are also a stamped MK1.S.286 what would this mean? and a lot of stamps on the frog but i cant make out anything.

    Be great if someone could help please see images

    Wellyboot, if you look at the B on your bayonet carefully, you can see that the less visible 'B' is actually surrounded on the left and bottom by a Capital 'L'. So it's definitely a Long Branch produced bayonet.

    You may be able to see what I mean more clearly with this -
