Hello

On some color illustrations, we see that the metal ends of the ducts bayonet of the British imperial infantry soldiers were color Yellow Metal.


But on the other color is white metal.

That depended on the battalion, or there were two colors (including in the same battalion) or a single color is good and which one?

Cheers

As well as the socket bayonet, there were many others used during the zulu war, one of them being the curved sword bayonet (often called the yataghan), which was used by sergeants and colour sergeants. Search through other topics for information on this, and you will also find zulu shield colours in the other topics on the forum.

Just click on home and look down the listings, you will be able to click onto the topics you require.

Regards.

The P'76 bayonet blade is polished steel, with the last 50mm cross brush/ linished to hold oil, the ricasso and socket are blued.

Scabbard is black leather with brass furniture, three brass rivets until 1878, two rivets post 1878

Good evening Neil

I speak of the bayonet scabbard.
It is black with a white metal extremitée ? ...

Congratulations and thank you Neil.

Your photo is awesome, so according to her, the extremitée sheaths are yellow metal!

Well, it's amazing because all the color illustrations in uniformology books on the Zulu War, the extremitée sheaths is in white metal when it is a model prior to 1879!

By the way I received last year, "Treatise on Ammunition" as you had suggested, but there ades things he'll have to explain ...

Cheers
