Dear Dr. I recently acquired a similar bayonet, marked 4 18 and under that SANDERSON. Where was Sanderson located? When I first recieved it I only quickly noted the 1907 stamp and assumed that was the year of manufacture. I said to my self " oh good the same year as my old BSA ". Wrong again as I usually am when I take a quick look and assume something.

Wheeler 44

Ps. I intended to look on this site fo all of the info. Sad that the archives are essentially lost.

The 20th Century British royal cyphers encountered will be for:

Edward VII (reigned 1901-1910);
George V (reigned 1910-1936); and,
George VI (reigned 1936-1952).

Edward VIII wasn't King long enough for his royal cypher to show up.

The maker represented by the marking, Sanderson, was: Sanderson Bros. & Newbould Ltd., Newhall Rd., Sheffield, Yorkshire.
