    Indeed it is, to be specific an Australian made version, from November 1945, (OA is Orange Armoury I believe) but the scabbard is a mismatched WW1 era type, with oval
    frog lug. Actually the "X" was a blade strength and flexibility test.

    The scabbard looks to be a 1903 pattern.

    Anderson is spot on.

    The scabbard is a No.1 Mk.II which was designed for use on the Pattern 1907 bayonet and issued up until the end of WW1 - so its right for your bayonet but just from an earlier time. The Pattern 1903 scabbard is a far bit shorter as their blade was only 11.75 inches as opposed to the 1907 blade's 17 inches.

    From shape of hook on scabbard, it looks like a prewar piece.Australian P1907 bayonet. b.r.Andy
