That wasn’t for the Garand. Cooks and support staff normally were issued M1 carbines or 1903s so clearly this was for the 1903. Most likely an ex seal cook and may have been stationed on the USS Missouri. At least that is how I remember the movie.

Looking at it though, i bet you would shoot the blade if a firearm was shot with that attached.

I believe it's lunge for scarecrows without a brain, and chop when entering homes of first two of three pigs. Either one requires fantasy to be present in abundance.;)

Back in 1977, I was stationed in Hawaii and visited a newly opened WW II museum at Fort DeRussey (sp) which was right on Waikiki Beach. A bunch of collectors had put up displays of artifacts and uniformed manikins.

In the "gift shop" one could buy all sorts of World War II items, many of which were found in various military storerooms around the island. I saw two 1905 bayonets in scabbards which were marked $2 each. I asked to see one, and the guy at the counter said, "Oh, you wouldn't want them, look..." and he pulled one from the sheath. It was only the handle with only about two inches of blade still attached.

Now I know what the guy who bought one of them did with it!
