Hi again.....I find it hard to upload pics to this site, and so do some of the other members, so if anyone can lift them and insert them, I will be most thankful. I posted the same question on another site with the pics...

Will..... I got the Medical service corps bit, but dont know what the A.D stands for. While trying to research this bayonet I found one with the same markings as mine but the rifle numbers are 2 up from mine. I got in-touch with the auction house who sold it over 10 years ago but they only keep records for 5 years! I have spoken to the Medical museum, and was promised an answer if I sent the pics in.......well I have not got it yet and that's months ago! ....... paul.

This link:
https://books.google.ca/books?id=VsgwDA ... &q&f=false

has names of places. The ones starting with A and ending with D (one has 2 words) I have counted at 24.

Abbey Dore, Ashford, Ashfield, Abbeystead, Abbotsford, Alderford, Aldfield, Aldford, Alford, Alfold, Alford, Ansford, Aperfield, Appleford, Arborfield, Airesford, Ammanford, Andoversford, Anfield, Ashtead, Ashurstwood, Astwood, Aylesford and Austerfield.

You would think it was one of these unless A.D is two words as Abbey Dore?

the above link may be useful and the archives below the book may have something.
