Two of my South African WW II  Pat.1907 Bayonets . Top: Manufactured by the South African Railways, probably at the Pretoria Workshops. Bottom: Manufactured by the Associated Engineers Company. These bayonets are characterized by their somewhat rough finish.

You folks have some of the neatest toys.  I am pleased to see such wonderful steel.  I can only guess at the blade length to be almost 2 ft.  Could you please give out the real length and maybe the weight?

roughly 17" of blade and another 5" of grip so just under 22" overall

Sarge,

At first glance it does look like that is the case.

However, with a colleague on the Great War Forum, I have been tracking the Wilkinson & Wilkinson Pall Mall dates for over a year now.  It turns out that BOTH the latest (as of today) recorded "WILKINSON" only stamp is 5 '16 AND the earliest "WILKINSON PALL MALL" stamp is also 5 '16. 

This is apparently related to RSAF, Enfield ceasing production in late-1915 (according to Skennerton), although I am aware of at least one EFD stamped 5 '16.

I would be interested to learn of any other EFD '07's dated to 1916.

Regards,

JMB
