The Battle of the Somme symbolised the horrors of warfare in world war one.

Equipped with your arsenal of weaponry, make haste and overtake your enemies; watch over your brothers and god speed. As a soldier in The Somme you are challenged to overtake your enemy's forces. Team work dependency is key without it you will fall to feet of your foes. Listen out for orders from your commanding officer. Which role are you? You decide! From the Medic class and being able to help wounded allies, to being an Officer, taking command to spot targets and mark them on your map to create devastation to your enemies forces with Artillery barrage.

Same thought to any trooper in the Argon Forest 1917.

there was this Us dough boy Whom name was Frank Brow, Was on the wrong side of the battle ground for his small group of some 100 men where told to throw off a German counter attack of a fair Number to theirs.

on the German side there was a young 17 of age German Footman Who went by Leon. Leon was young and exited when he had a chance of honor, like the knights he always read about. when in the trenches his dream turned down he found time to sharpen his blade.

Soon MR. Brow saw the Germans and got spooked in the black and red uniforms the German Battalion had! Shots where fired and men made there own moves, destruction on the trees and rocks all around.
Leon on the other side picked a U.s Soldier and thought to himself "that's my target" and ran at none other than Mr. Brow
Brow saw the young thin German running at him and took up his rifle and swung it and Leon. Leon jumped back to avoid then lunged forward at Brow and missed and launched his blade into a stump. Leon Pulled on the Rifle to retrieve the blade to attack again, but he was not the strongest man, His gun was stuck! Brow took notice of this and spent a second watching Leon pulling with all his might. soon Brow started to laugh at the sight of the Feared enemy who couldn't even get his gun free of mother nature. Brow Grabbed Leon by the belt and dragged him to the back lines, Leon not resisting because he knew his war was over and he was fine with that.

But all done and said after the war in 1921 Leon went back to that plot of land and got his old rusted blade back.

Very nice solid work once again, not sure on the notched teeth - neither side promoted the use of notched teeth on the bayonets , it was seen as inhumane and 'Ghastly' Soldiers caught with notched bayonets would often receive no quarter.

The sawtooth bayonet was originally issued to pioneers. The intention was to give them a weapon/tool that could be used both as a bayonet and as a saw. It turned out to be impractical for both (in combat the teeth hinder penetration when thrusting, and gets caught in tissues when trying to pull out).
And as mentioned previously captured soldiers caught with one tended to be shot on the spot by the enemy (at best!); hence why those bayonets were pulled out of service or had the teeth filled smooth.

That being said, it's a very nice model and texture.

Isn't it missing the loop to attack to the rifles?

These types of bayonets did not have a loop. The hilt of the bayonet should have a slit on its upper side. The rifle has a corresponding T shaped lug which slides in the slit and clips at the end.
The big buttons at the base of the bayonet’s hilt are for unclipping the bayonet from the rifle.
