Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Almost done painting my 28mm BTD British Infantry, and now have a nagging doubt !

Question - Should the tip of the bayonet scabbard for british infantry be brass or steel ?

The many pictures online are not that clear and I have seen both represented.

Don't ask which colour I went for as I have 50/50 chance on having to repaint a substantial number :)

Thanks all

For the period the converted P53/74 socket bayonet, black leather, brass chape and brass top/mouthpeice, ditto Common long socket (erroneously known as the P76), but most certainly with three brass rivets (not two, they did not appear until late 1878).

For NCO's bushed P56/60 yataghan sword bayonets,black leather, steel chape and tip.
