    Bayonets in PTO and ETO

    Stumbled across these pictures while looking for something else:

    Marines day before heading to Iwo 1945



    This one I've seen before, I believe it was Iwo Jima,



    Described as being found about 16 minutes in on the 2nd disc of a movie that the title of was not mentioned. There was a link to the movie but is no longer working. The Poster had paused the DVD and took a still picture with his camera.

    Marine 'Modification' while fighting on Eniwetok,





    Say's Tokyo 1945, Click on link below,

    World History on Instagram: “An unidentified allied soldier sharing cigarettes with four members of the imperial palace guard in Tokyo, 1945.”

    Here's one for now. I found some other pics I'll explain about later. These were ETO prior to TORCH Jump

    Now that's a new one on me - some kind of 'field-expedient' bayonet on a Carbine? I'm guessing the armorer would remove the front sight, slide the rear band on, replace the sight, slide the assembly into place and then tighten a screw clamp under the rear band. Whatever, not something you want to try when the call goes out to 'Fix bayonets!'.
    'Really Senior Member' Especially since I started on the original Culver forum. That had to be about 1998.

    Charlie, great post! The one overlooking the B29 ditching has been around and thought to be the only known picture showing the bayonet lug on a carbine actually during WWII. We’ve disected it here on more than one occasion. You just blew the “no bayonet lugs during WWII” theory right out of the water!

    Great post, thank you!

    BTW, that last two pictures show an experimental bayonet I believe. I read somewhere about them.

    The DVD pic is an M1icon rifle bayonet fitted to the carbine. That's how they started, field expedient.

    Regards, Jim
