18TH D-DAY ANNIVERSARY - 1962

A rusted bayonet was given to Fritz Blum by a M. Leprelle, whose farmhouse he and his brother stayed in. It was found by Leprelle when digging in his  pasture. Fritz thinks it may have been for the M1 Garand but isn't sure. Perhaps someone may be able to identify it.  If so, please write to Jumpmaster
