Based upon surviving Canadian and American examples, as within the Canadian War Museum collection, this British bayonet frog is produced using veg-tanned leather, dyed by hand using oil dye and sewn using waxed three cord linen thread. The frog is also secured using solid brass rivets, as found on the Canadian example of this item. The frog in question can be combined with various scabbards, using most often that of a British Long Land and Short Land Pattern "Brown Bess" bayonet and scabbard. This specific frog would have been secured upon the belting of a British solider in the American War of Independence, often on the belting of a Light Infantry solider's belly box, as well as within the Seven Years War / French and Indian War.
