    Thanks for the information Didier , Looks to be a Mark III , but still can't find a similar marking . Would MarkIII 's be made in 1964 ? Or is it a factory number or something ? Also is there anywhere to purchase a replacement sheath ?
    Cheers Chris

    Has anyone seen these marking before ? I'd like to know if it's WWII or not , and some idea of value . If it's not WWII , I might use it in the woods . But if it's valuable I'll keep it safe .
    Cheers Chris
