    RCE - Royal Canadian Engineers?

    1st -- is it CPB? hard to make out perhaps 1st Canadian Pioneer Battalion (see page2)

    643 is an inventory number

    1st Canadian Parachute Battalion? Or would this bayonet not have been issued in WWII? John

    I would guess Pioneers with Engineers being marked at a later date. Probably the same unit with only a change in name. Thus the first marking not being lined out since it was a reattachment at the time.

    Is the bayonet marked with a C with a broad arrow inside the C?

    This is a Canadian marking.
