Hi,

Does anyone know anything about Martini Henry P76 bayonet markings?

I have had one for a number of years and was looking at the markings trying to determine what they meant.

I have sussed out what some are (inspectors mark, broad arrow, crown) but not all of them.

Thanks

Simon

Late on this, the common long socket bayonet will have several markings. The proof inspection stamps, which will be Enfield or BSA & M Co. Then "R" which is the post 1881 bend & retest test marks. Look out for rack numbers and often "F.W.A." Fort William Arsenal and on those emanating from Nepal the Nagri regimental texts on the plain faces.

A small crown and "B.R". is Birmingham Repair, Bagot Street.

Hi Neil,

The bayonet has these markings:-

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I assume that 616 is the racking number and this number should also be on the metal work on the scabbard - which in this case is 509 - so the bayonet and scabbard are not an original pair?

There is also another number on the brasswork - which is similar to the 'crown 27 E' (on the blade) but looks like '28' or '29' E.

Does the 'E' stand for Enfield?

Thanks

Simon

Hi

I have since found out that the 'Crown 27 E' is a makers inspection mark and the scabbard is the MkII pattern

Cheers

This is not a P76 but a Yataghan - but equally unsure what the markings signify (such as they are). For comparison is a French Yataghan and so much more impressive! Markings could not be clearer, made at the Manufacture Imperiale de Mutzig in October 1867. Now why couldn't we manage that?
