This bayonet is the correct one for any German G33/40 Mauser. The bayonet superficially looks similar to the one for the K98 however the blade edge is reversed and the ring has been machined off. These bayonets were manufactured by Brno between 1940 and 1942. This one is marked dot on the bayonet and dot42 on the sheath.

Simple little add here. This is a metal, bakelite and cloth roundel or cockade in the national colours used on enlisted men’s soft caps in all three services. In this case the KM Donald Duck cap below was missing one when I got it, although it had the slots where one would have fitted. An easy cheap fix, unlike most of the rabbit holes I go down.
I have field caps for the Luftwaffe and Heer and have been looking for a KM one for a while. This one came relatively cheap from a trip to Belleville although it is missing its cockade on the front. I will look for one of these in the meantime but I am happy with the look of this. Note, the post-war hats are almost identical except that the inside liner is white in colour.
Ever since that KM Dagger walked into my life a few months ago I have been looking for a good Officer belt and buckle to hang it off. The dagger came with the narrow undress belt but I wanted the broader undress belt. Here it is, lovely.
A nicely executed badge, this is the Gold Honour Badge for HJ members. This example is marked to manufacturer M1/78 (Paulmann & Crone, Lüdenscheid). It also has the RZM mark, Ges-Gesch (protected design) and the owners issue number. The badge was awarded to members of the HJ or BDM who joined prior to Potsdam Day (October 2, 1932) and had five years continuous service.
This badge is an early pre-RZM example of the Officers Cap Badge for the Deutscher Luftsportverband. The DLV was created in 1933 in order to establish the training foundation for the later revealed Luftwaffe. I have an officers dagger for this organization here.
