Pommel marked "4. H.L.I. 34"

Enfield produced example dated 1910.

Good clear markings to both ricasso's.

1915 dated scabbard by H.G.R. Scabbard retains a high degree of its original brown colour, and is complete with leather frog stamped "2.R.S. 311"

The metalwork on bayonet and scabbard was painted black at some point, the second such HLI marked example to be painted thus, so possibly a battalion order to prevent reflection. The metalwork appears in good condition underneath.

Blade is full length, with no loss of tip, some light age related staining which appears to be old grease.

Fully functioning button and release catch.

A very pleasing example all round.

Strictly over 18's only.
