Charles,

Normally, they are attached to the bayonet frog, not the bayonet. Depending on the length of the strap (many wartime manufactured straps were shorter), the strap was wound around the frog with the "head" of the knot being passed through the loop at the end of the strap. The longer straps could be wound around the frog more than once before passing through the loop, thus keeping the knot from hanging down too low.
