I have recently obtained a bayonet that I believe from what I can see during research is one for an Owen Sub Machine Gun. It was disposed of at the local waste site that I manage. The only ID I can see is a serial number 34327 on the pommel and on the opposite side in small lettering what appears to be J FA. The blade is 9.5 inches (245 mm) long. It has been in a shed fire but not much damage done as the wood on the handle is not touched on one side and 25% burnt on the other. Sorry cant upload a picture but can email one if needed. I would like to confirm the ID of this bayonet if possible.
