Another two bayonets arrived today, thanks to the kindness of a board member. I thought I'd post a shot for interest's sake.

Along the bottom row, from left to right we have the WW1 Poms (and a Yank);
Chapman 1/18 (Aussie marked)
Vickers 3/18
Wilkinson ?/17
Wilkinson 7/17
Sanderson 10/17 (ex-Afghanistan)
Sanderson 1/17
Remington 9/15
EFD 2/14 (ex-Afghanistan)

Then the WW1 Aussies;
Lithgow 1915
Lithgow 1916
Lithgow 1917
Lithgow 1919

And the odd P'07s;
BSA Siamese Contract 1920 (in tin scabbard)
WSC 1943

On the top layer, from top to bottom we have the WW2 Aussies;
MA 8/41
MA 11/42
MA 4/43
MA 8/43
MA 1/44
MA 10/44
MA 6/45
MA 11/43 or 45 (hard to read the misstamp)

On an angle, on the right we have, from top to bottom;
Replica hooky Pattern 1913
Pattern 1888, 2nd variation 3/02
GRI MkIII 7/45
GRI MkII* 9/42

One day I'll find an 1918 and a 1940 Aussie, as well as a Mole of any date.

I also thought I'd post a pic of some timber I've picked up. I didn't bother posting a pic of my spare barrels as I've posted one a while ago.

Just something of possible interest.

Cheers,
Matt

Yeah, I didn't realise how many I'd picked up over the last two years. Good thing I've been living on two minute noodles! I seem to be one step ahead of the debt collectors, but I'm going with the idea that rifles and bayonets aren't going to go down in value in a real hurry.

Cheers,
Matt

I had half of mine out for an oiling down and snapped this a while back. I still don't see what the problem is.
Make the choice between burgers and steak and don't listen while the Mrs yells or the kids whine.
No problem! :)

Matt... put the bayonets down and back out of the room slowly... you have a problem, my friend.

Very nice. And to think, I have only one lonely Pattern 1 1907 type bayo!

No Owen bayonets mate?
Only about 3 styles of them for you to collect.
8" Mk1/1 and two of the 10" Mk1
The Mk1's seem to have two subtly different profiles.
