    A lot more in a Nimrod MRA4 because they had a bomb bay almost the full length of the aircraft unlike the P8 Poseidon.

    Are there normally any markings hidden under the grip scales of original K98 bayonets, please? Although I have several K98 bayonets I don't think that I've ever removed the grips.

    The 3x Joint Rivet aircraft that the U.K. are buying are only a replacement for the 3x R1 variant of the Nimrod, I believe. We are actually going to buy the P8 Poseidon (hopefully) to replace the...

    The dealer in question did have some information on his website a while ago about another bayonet which I wasn't sure about, whether or not it was correct. When I checked up elsewhere I found that...

    It was sold to me as a post war Czech refurbishment of a WW2 German bayonet by the dealer. But having received it I'm not so sure and so wondered what others thought about it. The cross hatched cover...

    Does anyone remember the AWAC conversion of the Nimrod that was attempted as a replacement for the ageing Avro Shackletons in the 1980s? The programme seemed to go on for ever, with no end in sight,...
  7. K98 Bayonet, is it refurbished or reproduction?

    This is a recent purchase, a K98 bayonet, which is in excellent condition. There are no markings which I can see on the bayonet, it's self, but the scabbard has all the normal German markings that...

    Quite agree, what we are trying to do is preserve history for the future. The fact that the original owner of the item may not of been a nice person, in some cases, doesn't really enter the equation,...

    Some years ago at a classic vehicle show I witnessed the civilian owner of a preserved Humber "Pig" armoured car decide that he needed to reverse his armoured car. The only problem was that there was...

    In the years after WW2 one or two of the U.K. caravan manufacturers did use some parts that were salvaged from aircraft such as wheels, for example. I believe these would have been fighter landing...

    We are where we are with the SA80 rifle, a rifle that, today, most people seem to say is reasonably ok. It may not be perfect, it may not be the best available bull-pup rifle, it may not be...

    Yes, in my opinion Honda were a very good business partner to B.L. and I've not heard much criticism of the Triumph Acclaim, on reliability grounds, over the years.

    Are you talking about the Triumph Acclaim which I have not heard much criticism of in the past? It was assembled in the U.K. and did have some U.K. made parts, I believe.

    Welcome to the Forum. No such thing as a stupid question because what's obvious to one person is not always so to another. I believe that they are slightly different with the M1917 mag depressor...

    One way of getting an idea of the age of a British/British Commonwealth cap badge is by looking at the crown because it normally changes slightly in style when the Monarch changes. For example the...

    I had assumed that "Nato Green" was used by all Nato countries, not just the British. Not necessarily to paint everything that required a green paint but a stock item that was available.
