Dear Sapper

I have forwarded your request to a man who may be able to help. He is one of the leading experts in the World on bayonets.

I see you served in the RE's in Hameln. What year (s)? I was in the dreaded Rough Engineering Made Easy and was with 28 Amphibious 1977-79.

Regards

Paul

You really need a Yataghan, bushed for a MH. You do occasionally see them but expect to pay 200+ for a really good one.

There are some 20th century "replicas" about, buyer beware, they are marked INDIA.
Neil

Heres a photograph of some of the Martini Henry Bayonets I have. By no means comprehensive but the most commonly found.
Top P1853/74 17 inch (bushed Enfield.) triangular C1874-80
Second P1876 22 inch triangular C1876-1900
Third P1853 Yataghan sword bayonet (bushed) C1853-81
Forth P1887 Mk1 sword bayonet (fullered blade). The P1887 Mk3 is the same but with coil spring and no fullering C1887-1900
Bottom P1877 Artillery sawback bayonet for Carbine C1877-1900

Very Happy ,
Dear " Whitehead Alfie " ,
You are forgiven serving in REME , someone had to ! , i was in 1st Fld Sqn RE at Nienberg in 1969 when the call for fitters came to go Hameln , the original 3 month detachment lasted 8 and a half years , a great time for me working on those " rigs " , ironic that after all these years i now re-enact as an RE C 1879 still on the lookout for that 19 inch curved bayonet ( i still have a lunger bayonet with scabbard for part exchange ) to add to the overall effect , if i have not replied in any format to you on this i apologise as of now. Check out the links , you will find me there under archivist , all the best , " Sapper " Wink

Not sure if this website will be of any use, but I know one of the partners who has just nailed a wasp nest in my roof!
Try www.oldguns.co.uk as they also sell bayonets etc as well as Martini Henrys and other antique weapons.
