Other than the markings stating it is a no4 mk II bayonet what do the other 2 little imprints mean?
The B symbol in between the K and II?
the little curve with a kind of hook on the right end above the O? - marking or scratch?
And lastly, overall value of the bayonet? I have a cover stamped, 1944 mk1 aswell.

Checked online & seen nothing about U Boats hiding along riverways in Brazil, Venezula, Ecuador from Allied patrols in So Atlantic.
Media model: Murphys War, 1971.( On DVD). Peter O Toole, best role since Lawrence Arabia.
From novel, written.
Anyone who served in Merchent Marine or RN, USN hear of U Boats hiding in riverways after damage etc??
Or Hollywood fiction.
The reasons they lost the war:
1 They did not just take out Britain after the blitz of France, Belgium etc.
Yes I am aware it would still be very difficult for the Nazis to do this.
2 Invade Russia without enough materials, Tanks, Guns, men.
If they had also gotten Japan to invade Siberia.
Waited to gather oil from Romania,
Not halt the Strumgewer program
and just more men.
Have Japan wait to get the united States in the war.
If Japan would have waited they could very well had a better chance of winning the war.
Less Submarines more cruisers. If the Nazis had built more cruisers, battleships.
They could have put more of a strain on the British war effort.
Better anti aircraft guns.
If this was done the Nazi war effort would have been much less effective.

Just read on WH about an average German who knew of the Nazi atrocities being done.
& feel for those Germans when they knew of the Jews being sent East & concentration camps being erected to send them to the Death camps.
& if any Germans living in Poland after 1939 noticed the ash from cremation of the Jews in the said Death Camps??
Opens up a whole new yarn to German knowledge of Nazi crimes.
To run Poland etc they had to have employees run said cities etc thus average Germans in Poland would know about death camps, or how could use explain ash??
Am I right or was Poland under total Military control& No civilian Germans came to aid running of Govt.??
