Other than Spike bayonets the book also covers the Sten, No.7, No.9 & EM2 bayonets. The ‘Spirit of the Pike. British Socket Bayonets of the Twentieth Century’ (2003) by Graham Priest covers so much more including engineering drawings together with wood and steel prototypes. Manufacturing factories and the contracts for both production and spares are listed. The hardback cover book contains 352 pages with over 900 photographs and drawings. The text covers the development of the British No.4 rifle and bayonet and other similar weapons used throughout the world.
