    Hello Steve, thanks for the kind comments, and thanks for the information on the unit markings. I have been trying to find the book on Imperial markings but cannot find a copy. Where did you get your information from mate. Regards Jim
    Jim....the infantry, company and weapons numbers are easy enough to remember over time (I have been collecting for over 45 yrs !)....infantry Regiment details a little harder, so I surf the web or use reference books (of which I have a mini library at hand !), for those not so easy Regimentals, Jeff Noll's excellent little book on the subject, comes in handy...its been out of print for some time and is not easy to find....
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    Hello Troy,
    Military fairs are the best bet or on line.
    It is a hard bayonet to find in good condition, I have a few in my collection but they are marked different so are not for sale.
    Regards

    Jim

    Ps they can be quite expensive,it depends on who is selling them.
