    I thought that our Australian members and others may like to see this Lithgow 1907 bayonet of 1919 vintage which I came across while looking at some of my other bayos this evening.

    Some of these late production 1907 bayonets are sometimes advertised as being "Lanchester" or "Naval Contract" with an inflated price tag just because they may have the factory Dispersal Code marked...

    Working from memory and if I recall correctly it looked similar to a standard K98 bayonet but it had a combination tool contained/concealed within it's handle. Perhaps someone is able to post some...

    There could be problems if it was just signed for without stating "goods not inspected" or similar but I guess it all depends on the goodwill of the vendor/carrier. Personally, I would expect the...

    I did find a copy of "The Broad Arrow" listed on Amazon for sale and it was a good job that I was sitting down when I looked at the price of over 800. Thanks for the alternative bigduke6.

    The picture in post 6 I found by chance online while looking for something else and it was suggested that it was a "Naval Contract" 1907 because it had the dispersal code of S294. One would expect...

    It's very rare that new old stock wood seems to turn up, that I've seen offered for sale, for the Bren. If you can't repair and use what you have, I would say that you would most likely have to look...
