This American WW1 1917 Pattern bayonet was imported to the UK for service in WW2 and was issued to Home Guard and auxiliary units. The bayonet was made by Remington.
The 433mm blade has a deep single fuller on both sides and a rounded spine. The matt finish blade is in good condition with a tiny line of shallow pitting at the point on one side. The blade retains its original factory edge.
The blued ricasso is stamped with the 1917 pattern designation above the Remington maker’s mark. The obverse ricasso bears the “flaming grenade” over “US” ordnance stamp and an eagle head numbered inspection stamp. The cross guard and pommel retain their original blueing and the wooden grip scales are in great condition. The press-stud locking mechanism works perfectly.
The bayonet is complete with its American M1917 Mk III green leather scabbard with a British leather frog commonly associated with the Home Guard. The scabbard and frog are in good condition. The leather is firm and undamaged with age and use related wear. The stitching is intact and strong. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This Remington P1917 is in good condition and is a great example of a British WW2 import bayonet for Home Guard issue.
