The 1907 pattern bayonet was officially called the Sword bayonet, pattern 1907 (Mark I) initially designed for use with the Mk III SMLE rifle. The 1907 pattern was use by both British and Commonwealth troops as late as WW2, with India making a cut version in 1941.
The hooked lower quillion, which was suppose to trap and snap enemy bayonets when grappling, was deemed impractical, becoming obsolete by the end of 1913. However many reserve units came to France with them still attached, as did the Australians at Gallipoli.
This bayonet was made by Enfield in 1911. There is a unit marking which I can’t really make out but looks like “8 R.C” or maybe eroded “K.R.R.C” for the Kings Royal Rifle Corps?
