    Thats a beauty Jerry, Obviously a lot of work went into engraving it.
    Is it made from an actual shell or melted down shells??

    I think the main body is from a shell case and the handle from melted down parts. The engraving is really good, but it is very difficult to photograph it well enough to do it justice. It was silver plated, but most of that has gone.

    He was an RAF pilot.

    I have seen one other, so I assume these were made on a small scale semi industrial manufacturing basis, rather than one of a kinds. I have also seen a similar example with the ETO map, but it was not as finely engraved and I don't think it was ever silver plated, but that might be a problem with my memory!
