These ‘aluminium’ type bayonets are the custom made pieces for officer’s, who for parades also favoured buying private purchase lightweight aluminium parade helmets. As Thomas Wittman points out in his reference books on these, these were favoured by officer’s, who could well afford to purchase these, rather than wear the standard issue, ‘cut down’ varieties.
