Description

1907 Wilkinson Bayonet dated 1917
British issue Pattern 1907 bayonet by Wilkinson dated June 1917 with Edward VII royal cypher.
Fullered blade struck to the left side with Crowned ER over 1907
The right side stamped with a Broad Arrow next to various ordnance inspection and ownership marks.
In scabbard stamped and dated HGR17

Adopted in 1907 to fit the SMLE rifle the ‘07 was longer than the previous 1903 bayonet it replaced and was designed to replicate the reach of the old 1888 bayonet when fitted to the long lee rifles in combat. This it achieved but at the cost of inferior performance as a fighting knife, the blade being too long for really effective use as a knife.
