Hello,
My friend just brought me 2 bayonets that have been passed down his family, for identification. Unfortunately, this isn't my area of expertise. I was just wondering if there is a historian out there who could help me with identification? I have photos and videos of both, but I am having trouble uploading them here, but I will be able to show you them.

I don't know much about the bayonets except:

Bayonet 1:
- Sword bayonet (as a posed to plug or socket)
- Has markings (not sure what they mean)

Bayonet 2:
- Sword bayonet
- Writing on it (looks french)
- Dated 1877

Thanks for anyone who can help. 
:)

There are web sites which can be Googled and which may help you in identifying the manufacturers marks.

Consider also carefully removing the handles as marking are often made on the tang.

If you could provide picture it would be a great help.

Save your photos to your PC,and then at the top of the post see a picture icon. Click on that and look to the bottom side of the page where you'll be asked the location of the photo, for example C/Pictures/bayonet.jpg (or jpeg)

Click on that and the photo should transfer over to your post. if that's not possible, let me know and we can do it by you emailing me the pic and I'll upload it for you.
It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.
