This is a very rare and original British No. I Lee-Enfield Jungle Carbine bayonet. It comes with original metal scabbard and web frog.
The bayonet has been made at the Royal Ordinance Factory, Poole. It is unknown how many No. 5 bayonets were made in this factory in a short production time right after the WW2. There are a lot of markings on the bayonet, the most important is a clearly visible P in a circle before a year 1946on ricasso. The bayonet fits in scabbard perfectly, very good interior tension spring.This bayonet has been reissued at some point and, I would say, the grips and screws have been arsenal replaced. Im assuming the markings on the pommel should give us a hint. My items are not new (unless noted) and usually are very old.
There are dents, dings, chips, rust and other imperfections present. The item "Rare British No. I Jungle Carbine Bayonet by Poole 1946 with Scabbard & Frog" is in sale since Sunday, November 3, 2019.
