A rare and unique named 1858 Enfield Yataghan Bayonet for the two band Enfield musket. These were commonly carried by sappers, engineers and other ancillary troops but also used by skirmishers and NCO's as a weapon of choice sometimes. The soldier in question is C. E. Bailey, the type of bayonet means he was most likely an ancillary soldier attached to a Scottish regiment as I can find no record of this man in a scottish regiment. I can identify the Scottish connection through the strap on the rear, when the blade is placed through the pair make a cross for Highland sword dancing. This bayonet can be yours for £300 or best offer.
