Weapon Overview

In the absence of an approved sword bayonet at the time of general issue of the Martini Henry, The Pattern 1860 Yataghan sword bayonet was adapted for the Martini Henry. This involved the bushing of the muzzle diameter to suit the Martini Henry, and a mortised slot cutting into the pommel to suit the bayonet band. The Yataghan was standard issue to NCO's and rifle regiments. In 1893, further adaptation of the Yataghan were implemented to allow conversion to MKII & MkIII artillery carbine conversions.
