Offered here is a bayonet made by Wilkinson Sword in 1917 for WW I. Most parts are in very good shape for the age of the bayonet. Markings are:
Crown and GR – Royal Cypher for Georgius Rex V Reigned 1911-1936
1907 – Year the pattern for this bayonet series was developed
WILKINSON – Manufacture
7 17 date made and put into service (July, 1917)
Broad curved X – Gov. acceptance mark
X close to crosspiece – Gov. bend test
E - Enfield Royal Small Arms Factory (R.S.A.F.) inspection mark (possibly)
Other inspection and Regimental marks hard to see.
Locket – Frog side
E - possibly Enfield
I don’t see any Regimental marks or numbers on either side of the Pommel. Locking bolt and spring are good and solid. The crosspiece is a tiny bit loose. The Locket and Chafe can be moved slightly, but the wire lace is still holding those parts on quite well. There’s a teardrop shaped frog on the Locket. The true edge has held well. The tip is still sharp and not rounded, so I doubt this was modified for training.
