    As Timothy has said, an extremely rare maker, and for such a late war bayo, it is in fantastic condition, IMO.

    Yup, I love this one, nice late war 'rough' finish! I like the way the brazing has spilled over and they've just stamped the serial number over it and the WaA on the bottom of the scabbard is the same.

    Being in the "V" block, I wonder how close the Americans were in France following the D-Day landings when this was being manufactured?

    Not sure, probably not that far away!!

    Any idea on when they actually stopped making them? Was it prior to D Day or were they still churning them out until the last possible moment?

    I'm unsure how many bayo's were being produced yearly at Chatellerault, but the "v" block, if I am doing the math correctly, would be in the 230,000 range. So, my guess would be that they were still being produced, for a while anyway, after the D-Day landings.

    Don't take this as gospel because I can't remember 100% where the info came from but I've got written down that the 1943 production for jwh made bayonets ran upto the 'r' block and then in 1944 instead of starting again from scratch they just continued on from the 's' block until production stopped somewhere in the 'v' block?
    Like I said I can't recall where the info came from but it might of been something AndyB did and put up on the 'net a while back??

    If starting from scratch then it would of been somewhere like 230,000 like you say but this seems a hell of a lot of bayonets for that stage of the war and also in the time scale of a max of 6 or 7 months maybe, whereas if they did start again at the 's' block then that would of been circa 40,000 bayonets which seems more plausible??

    Any thoughts? Would that sound right?

    That very well may be the case, I just had a look at http://k98.free.fr/ and find that of the several bayo's he has posted for that year, the "s" block is the earliest. If anyone would know it would be Andy,
