    I have found pictures of German KM soldiers with Mosin Nagant rifles as well will include these too have many more to list in the coming weeks. I find picture #5 one of the most interesting it clearly shows German Marines training with 71/84 rifles I wonder if these were some of the earlier 71/84 contracts many years prior.
    Very nice photographs. You would be surprised on what you can find on vintage postcards from that era.

    Jordan, just a couple bayonet data points from my personal collection for you:

    1) 03 Simson marked on hilt: I S.B.142
    Marked on scabbard:
    St. A. 250 and W.W. 8323

    2) 02 Erfurt marked on hilt: I S.B. 261
    No scabbard units

    3) M/M scabbard on an 06 bayonet with a boxer rebellion unit mark: E. S. B. II 1981. (The E is lined through indicating the scabbard was folded back into standard SB inventory after the rebellion was put down. )

    Will let you know if I come across any others. If nothing else just more evidence Simson had a big hand in naval bayo production.
