HXP is probably the best 303 ammo in the world - take his hand off.

From looking at US prices quoted, $1 / round may be a little bit high but probably not far off.

$1 / round for HXP will be cheap this time next year.

....... the name No1 Mk1 refers to the first type of Patt 07 bayonet.
I'm afraid I must correct you on that - in fact the No1 Mk1 refers to a wire cutter which was introduced in 1916 and could be atached to either the No1 Mk3, the Ross or the P17 rifles

Cutters, Wire, S.A.No.1 Mark I: 60,000 ordered under contract 94/C/2849 dated 28 August 1916 - Completed

Breakers, Wire, S.A.No.1 Mark I: 15,000 ordered under contract 94/B/2997 dated 21 October 1917 - Completed

Breakers, Wire, S.A.No.1 Mark I: Continuation ordered under contract 94/B/3486 dated 4 December 1916 - 2,000 per week

I'll stand corrected at the moment until I find LoC references, but page 37 of SAIS No1 lists "Bayonet, No1 mk1" in the accessories
"British and Commonwealth Bayonets", page 194 shows Patt 1907 scabbards, No1 Mk1, No1 MkII, and No2 Mk1

Found it.. LoC A1635, Change in designation from Sword Bayonets Patt 1907 Mk1 to Bayonets, No1 mk1 (at the time when the MkIII and MkIII* became Rifle No1 MkIII and MkIII* in May 1926)

Thankyou for the challenge, Alan :) Just goes to prove again they recycled names as well as parts!
Not a problem - dont like to think of you sitting bored all day.
As you know - its the 'prefix' thats the important bit, for the wire cutters :

"Cutters, Wire, Small Arms, No1 Mk1", and in the case of your bayonet :

"Bayonet, No1 Mk1"

I'm sure there are thousands of items that have the nomenclature No1 Mk1.
