REPRINTED WW2 PRESS PHOTOGRAPHS In the mid 1980's I purchased a group of items relating to GeneralEisenhower's SHAEF Headquarters in the UK - yes, such things did turn up back then!!. There were various items of (non classified) paperwork along with a group of original press photographs, many of which have appeared in books etc ever since. Along with the well known photos were a group which were obviously taken at the time but not released in public. I always called them the "next one on the film roll" or they just were not the correct quality for release. ALL of these originals were sold years ago, however I had some reprinted at the time and have had them stored for over 25 years ! Although I cannot say where or when the originals of these were taken , they do form an excellent and unusual reference of uniforms etc of the period. These are NOT ORIGINAL but reprints of official WW2 photographs

The adaptor will still fit to the bayonet & the rifle. Photos show 2 adaptors and, for illustration purposes only, an adaptor actually fitted to a bayonet.
