  • Description: A scarce double marked 1907 patt bayonet S.A.A.F. to the South African Airforce. This piece shows its original 1915 and 1916 issue markings. At some time after 1920 this example was issued and marked to the small South African air force. The issue #2277 is below the S.A.A.F. marking. The airforce had approx. 200 start up aircraft and approx. 10,800 personnel. This piece was sourced from a South African collection and was probably issued to an airbase guard unit. Clean blade, sound grips and scabbard. The left grip panel is over stamped S.A.P. indicating a reissue to the South Police. See the sale of a similar bayonet on a South African Auction at 1,302 SAR.
