Original and early production British No.4 Mk I cruciform bayonet for the Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk I Rifle. The No4. Mk1 bayonet was only produced from late 1941 and into the early months of 1942. The sole maker was the Singer Manufacturing Co., at their Clydebank plant near Glasgow, Scotland.
This bayonet is in excellent condition. The 203mm blade is etched on the top right-hand flute with an electro-pencil, showing the War Department broad arrow, numeral and inspection mark.
The socket block is stamped with King George’s royal cypher, bayonet designation and S M for Singer Manufacturing Company. The obverse of the socket is faintly stamped “US2.” This is probably a Singer factory inspection mark. The spring mechanism bears the Singer designation and the production date 41, for 1941.
This rare bayonet is complete with its correct No.4 Mk I scabbard.
