I have been painstakingly cleaning,and nothing else. I found a couple of stamps that I cannot cross reference with anything I have on hand. On one of the bayonets I found M/158/M. On another bayonet, I found N30 and underneath that H&B. The scabbard for that bayonet has S191 stamped on the bottom. I am writing down what I have and where it originated from and these four issues have me at a complete stop for the time being. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

M158 = Lucas Ltd (Birmingham)
N30 = Howard & Bullough Ltd (Accrington - Lancashire)
S191 = Franco-British Electrical Co (Hurley - London)
