Notes

Two plug bayonets with similarly inscribed blades were offered for sale by Thomas Del Mar (in association with Sotheby's), London 12 December, Lots 297 & 298 (all with col. illus.), ex Warwick Castle (inv. nos, repectively, E026, E025). The hilts of these those of the the similar Lots 299 & 300 (also ex Warwick Castle, inv. nos E23 & E24, but with uninscribed blades) were similar to Royal Armouries X.70. (PJL, 16/11/07)
