Hello sirs,

Unfortunately I have no history on these items however I do know that this was a common WW2 paratrooper modification so I hope that it's acceptable to post pictures here. I have several of these M1918's however these two are my only modified versions. The second did not have a sheath when I acquired it so it rests in a reproduction (sorry) until I come across an affordable original.

Best,
Rob
