the no 5 has a specific bayonet , it only fits that rifle due to the muzzel fitting , but the mkV was a trials rifle in the evolution from the no1 rifles to the no4 , at that point in time the pattern 1907 was still the standard , its the only correct bayonet , all others that you might think and might fit will be incorrect , 

that said - do as you please , we dont mislead nor misstate here , 

ill add the P03 might fit but it was for an earlier rifle ,  and the indian shortened might fit but they were for a different rifle far later , neither would be correct , 

you can certainly have a historically incorrect pairing and claim it to be whatever you want but those of us that know will know 
shamu - no one would consider that correct but you are right the 1800s bayonet will fit the 1920s rifle ,

It is a p1907 just modified for use in WW2. The Mk V was a trial rifle but they were issued for use after Dunkirk when the British Army lost a tremendous amount of firearms. So in my opinion it is historically correct as it it part of the history of this particular bayonet due to the circumstances of the time.

Thanks!

Oh you didn't.

The bayonet is the issue, not the rifle. That's fine.
Most of the chopped bayonets were chopped in India, not the UK, so it would be "right" for an Indian  rifle though.

 The bayonet issued for use with the MkV trials rifle was a Pattern 07, no ifs ands or butts.
If any were issued to troops to go to war with, they would have got a 1907 bayonet to play with.

So if you really have a MKV trials rifle, then you really need a 1907 bayonet. A 1920`s made if you can find one.

You should post some pics of your rifle for all of us to enjoy and drool over.
shoot em if you got em
