Not a British 1907. It is a Czech VZ24 or Czech VZ23, the inverted blade and angled pommel where it meets with grips tells that. The VZ23 had a blade length of 9.75 (248mm) and the VZ23  long, had a blade length of 15.75 (400mm).The VZ24 had a blade length of 11.75 (298mm). The VZ23 copied the earlier Austrian M1895 bayonets inverted style blade. VZ24 bayonets were manufactured from the 1920s  to 1950. I enclosed pic of a Brit 1907 and VZ24 for comparison.
