What bayonet is this?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi chaps. Would i be right in thinking this is an SLR bayonet? I'm not quite sure which version it is though. [​IMG]

    Sorry for the large image i can't be arsed to resize it. Cheers.
  2. I can't be arsed to tell you!
  3. Is the blade ground on one side or both?

    Looks like an L1A3, but equally (and if there are no markings on it, it could be a Aussie one)
  4. Meanie.

    Its ground on both sides, can't be Aussie as it was my dads (i think). Said father was in the Army so i put two and two together.. :roll:

    I just found this website anyway. You're right Jonno it must be a L1A3.

  5. It should be stamped into it in two places. As JJ said it is either a L1A3 or possibly the last model the L1A4. And although the descriptions say "ground" one side or two it does not mean the edge is sharp. If it has been sharpened then it is spoilt as far as price is concerned.
    They fetch about £30/50 depending on condition and model
  6. If Argies are rusty,... then no you get less. :wink:
