These next two photographs are of the same No. 1 MK II India pattern bayonet from above. The pictures show the stampings that are found on each side of the blade. This entire series of bayonets was manufactured in India and contains the manufacturing designations as seen in the picture on the left. The stampings show the date of manufacture which was August of 1942,. The G.R.I. mark indicates Georgius Rex Imperator and the R.F.I. mark indicates Rifle Factory Ishapore.
The white lettering in the photograph on the left is not original and I added this to the item after it was fully cleaned and inspected. This white lettering is not permanent and is easily removed. To learn what I used for the white lettering, please click HERE.
