WW1 'Gallipoli' Interest British '07 Pattern Hooked Quillon Bayonet, 9th Battalion , Worcester Regiment

A fine example of the WW1 British 1907 pattern hooked quillon bayonet with regimental markings to the 9th Battalion, Worcester Regiment on its pommel.
The 9th (Service) Battalion landed in Gallipoli as part of the 39th Brigade in the 13th (Western) Division in July 1915. The battalion was evacuated from Gallipoli and moved to Egypt in January 1916. They transferred to the North Persia Force in July 1918.
With much original blueing remaining to its metal surfaces the blade is very nice & bright & has clear markings stamped to the ricasso. Made by Enfield (EFD) Its first & only issue date is '09 13' & so is a strong candidate for having been souvenired after the campaign by its original owner. Only a small amount of pitting exists to one side of the pommel area. Walnut grips are excellent with only very minor service bruising.
The black leather second pattern scabbard is correct for this bayonets date having come into service from 1909 onwards. It is in superb condition with illegible markings 'EFD' markings to reverse. The two digits of the date can just about be seen & although not 100% dechiperable through wear the outline remaining could well fit the '13' issue date of the bayonet.
An overall excellent piece that could certainly tell a story.

WW2 German M24 Stick Grenade 1943

A very nice example of the now very rare WW2 German stick grenade.
Of the high explosive M24 model this piece has some green paint remaining to metal parts & has no woodworm to its 'gzo 1943 ' dated handle. The imprinted date of '43' can just about be discerned on the top of its HE head . The detonator housing has been removed to facilitate deactivation & thus this piece is totally inert & free from explosives as can be seen upon visual inspection.
Screw cap housing still present .
UK sales only.

WW2 No.5 Fighting Knife ( Converted From Bayonet )

A wartime conversion of the No.5 Jungle Carbine bayonet to a fighting knife this being a Wilkinson made example with 'WSC' markings to ricasso.
Converted by the removal of its muzzle ring & pommel catch it is in good used condition with two splits to one side of the wooden grips. Wood grips are still firm & this was most likely a result of the conversion.

WW1 French Lebel Bayonet 86/93/16

The French 'Poilu' of WW1 was armed with the Lebel rifle there being a few changes to its bayonet over its life span. This is the last pattern produced & has , as from 1915 onwards , a brass handle & no hooked quillon. These were found to snag on equipment & barbed wire & so were either removed or manufactured without from this date onwards.
Overall a very nice example complete with scabbard .
