    Mystery Frog?

    Any thoughts on the origin of this frog or which bayonet it's for, please? It came with a pigsticker bayonet which is slightly ridiculous as it's even too big for a 1907 scabbard. It appears to be unmarked and unissued. Many thanks for any replies.

    I think you have it in the right context. Looks to be new, after some wet and dry it will be smaller.

    A 1937 Pattern frog for the 1907 Pattern bayonet. Possibly a recent put together.

    The 37 pattern frogs are very tight when 'new old stock' and unissued.

    The earlier year drop pattern 1907 bayonet scabbard fits easier as I recall.

    Is it new, do people actually reproduce 37 pattern gear these days?

    Probably showing my age here, but I can remember when surplus shops had 37 and 44 pattern web equipment piled high in bins for next to nothing.

    I used to have a 37 pattern large pack for my school books as I recall.

    I don't think it's reproduction but it does look unissued and it may not necessarily be Britishicon. It seemed excessively loose for a 1907 scabbard and that is why I questioned that application. I can't think of a bayonet, used during or since WW2, that has a scabbard with a larger girth than the 1907 scabbard and which I also have an example of to try in the frog but I am open to suggestions.
