British bayonet No 7 Mk I to submachine gun Sten M
Obtained recently as part a deceased Royal Marines effects. The items included all his medals and a photo and this 'all purpose' No7 bayonet that was designed to fit the Mk7 sten and the SMLE rife. It has an ingenious mechanism whereas the neck of the bayonet swivels round and locks into 2 positions. Bayonet has been hung on a wall for display, blade is in good condition, has been oiled with very minimal wear. For some reason several parts of the mechanism have been carefully highlighted in white (now cream) paint, including the scabbard frog catch.
