Look on facebook for the Royal Warwicks, (WW1 Living History Re-enactors).

They have a wealth of knowledge.

They may even sign you up as they are recruiting at the moment.

You may be contacted by a senior member of the group who also posts on here.

No wah, but try calling the royal amouries in leeds. They have loads of "off show" gear. I have a contact there, pm me with details of what you need and I will see if they can help.

The loop was originally for a sling swivel, but then it was adapted to be the securing point for a breech cover:





The correct bayonet is a pattern 1907 sword bayonet.

Use locking wire to make sure the bayonet cannot be drawn from the scabbard without the locking wire being cut and removed.

You can get 1907s that have already been blunted at tip and edge for drill purposes. Usually, they are a lot cheaper than unmolested bayonets.
