Hey,

I have a chrome plated number four spike bayonet scabbard that I might be willing to trade off.

Anyone have an interest?

I have one of the chrome scabbards too; with a very clean spike bayonet. I was wondering if the chroming would be done after the end of WWII.
There not being much to parade about during the conflict!

i suspect there , much like here , there was always a compliment of parade items for those solomn occassions , military funerals , government ceremony , a bit of royal pomp and circumstance maybe ? 

i have noticed ours at state funerals , i distinctly remember the glint at kennedys funeral , 

i had a few in my accumulation years ago , mostly US back then - M1905 and later shortened versions , actually had the spike and scabbard ,
