Sales enquiries

This is a short version of the British Pattern 1907, manufactured to fit the Short Magazine Lee-Enfield No.1 series Infantry Rifles used during WWII. It retains the British GRI Crown, so it was not in service with the Indian army post independence. All good but worn and aged. Grip with some small dents / nicks, period sharpened 12 inch blade with a small nick. Sheath overall good but some age. Bayonet sheathes and draws well.

Quite likely saw action in Burma and eventually Malaysia against the Japanese in WW2. Nice price; £80. Please quote item reference R53. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0526-51x12x10 (0.793).
