Unusual dress bayo with grip plate insignia

Article about: If there was a few RM's to be made.... things like this were not as tighly controlled as Party items being outside the RZM licence system. More research is needed. Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ronnie, I don't have this particular Johnson book: what does he describe it as? I don't really see the need for a Policeman to buy a Heer style dress bayonet?

    I am always very wary of Heer bayonets with insignia on the grips. Too much fooling around with these over the past 30 years has muddied the waters. While the bayonet itself is original, the big question is (as you know) when and why was the grip insignia put there? I liked Harvey. What did he describe it as?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ronnie.

    What I would love to see is some kind of period sales cataloge or Police uniform regulations to confirm why and where they would be worn. My big concern is not the sum of the parts, but just why would a German Policeman have the need to buy and wear one of these? Thinking more about it, and getting away from the Schupo train of thought etc, maybe we should be looking more towards Field Police, etc?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Not so much that, much more likely enterprising makers making items. After all, these were private purchase.

    Cheers, Ade.
