Not only screaming, but screaming through a bullhorn. Hereís a genuine example. There were several variations (different maker stamps, spinners) but the Swiss quality remained consistent.

Tony - as ever many many thanks for taking the time to reply and post photographs. Put side by side it is absolutely obvious that this is a fake. As you say bullhorn. But in the UK we would say megaphone - strange eh!
Can somebody identify which unit would be this man from ?

Thank you for answering.
But I am afraid the seller wanted to write PSZ and not PSK. I didn't find the name of the paybook in listing for 10th PSK.
Need better photos to give a good opinion. Both sides of the blade, close up of the pommel (any stamps) and ricasso. Cosmoline wiped off the blade. But the price seems OK.
According to the old smithy site the wz.1922 was not marked Perkun. It should not have a flash guard and was a bit of a thin flimsy blade.
Pommel - sometimes marked WZ22
Right ricasso - typically Zbr 4 (armoury #4 in Krakow), however you can also get Zbr. Nr.4, Zb.Kr (rare) or Zbr.4 over Krakow (very rare)
Left ricasso - Polish eagle over W.P, (Wojsko Polskie = Polish Army)
Re the wz.1929 which the old smithy site say were renamed wz.28 bayonets - The wz.1928 has a flash guard and a muzzle ring, also made without the flash guard. This bayonet was made by PERKUN
To me it looks like a wz.22 but as I said better photos needed to be sure. The Perkun stamp would rule it out according to old smithy but maybe that site is wrong.
This veterans jacket is on ebay. It seems to have a 11 Batalion Łączności pocket badge. The Monte Cassino cross number is 40833. I wonder if this is basically a sound group or has it been put together for display purposes?

When I first noticed the items on ebay, I noticed that there was no photograph of the reverse of the Monte Cassino Cross or mention of the number, so I contacted the seller and he provided me with a photograph of the reverse and updated the details on ebay.
The tunic has 3DSK cloth badge and rank for a Kapral, below are the details of the individual awarded the Monte Cassino Cross which I provided to the seller but when I last looked, he had not put them on the ebay item.
