Re: bayonets

The way the fuller of the bayonet extends all the way to the tip would seem to indicate that these were cut down Pattern 1907 bayonets, and not short by design. --Funkychinaman 20:47, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, the bayonet in focus has the fuller running to the tip, this bayonet was designated the No.1 Mk.1* (the original 17" blade being the No.1 Mk. 1) which was a cut-down ( from 17" to 12") variant. However, there were also new-made 12" bayonets produced in India which, after looking at the footage, are also present. Interestingly, these shortened bayonets didnt come into being until 1941 (according to ian Skenenrton, a well-known Lee-Enfield expert) so their use is anachronistic, however I chose to omit this detail. So, in essence, what we see are a mixture of cut-down bayonets and bayonets designed to be short from the start. Hope this clears things up. --Stransky 21:50, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
