    Hi there,

    I picked up some spare parts for my MG13 today, and the seller said he had a bayonet too.
    I have a few K98 bayonets, one matching, but this is particularly nice, so I was quite pleased.
    The frog is very clean, and I do not have one like it.

    If anyone has any opinions, other information on this I'd love to learn more.
    It is all matching, blade/scabbard - 6603.







    Thank you in advance, gentlemen,

    Pit.

    On the rear of the scabbard - s/232 1936
    And the frog is also marked 1936
    After FLHK dtrS ? (not sure about this one)
    At tip of belt loop A
    At base of rear of leather Dresden 1936 below Gebruder Klinge

    Nice bayonet.

    FLHK = Fliegerhorst Kommandantur A Fliegerhorstkommandantur was the HQ unit of an Air Force Base (Fliegerhorst). The other lettering will be the base name.

    Cheers, Ade.

    No - unfortunately, I cannot read the details much more than you.
    The photo actually high lights it better than in person.

    I'll check again tomorrow in daylight - it's nearly 3am and I have been re-writing an assignment - so eyes are done, lol. Militaria boards are a great source procrastination.

    Thank you, guys - this is great information.

    Pit.

    Could this have been a training base and the last word is Schule ?

    An airfield listed as Fliegerhorst is Swabisch Hall Hessenthal, maybe that helps ?
