    Was the file issued with the kit a rat-tail or triangular-section?

    Triangular section would probably work better on those teeth.

    I should clarify rat tail handle, has to be a cultural thing, growing up any file with a spike handle was a rat tail

    I notice that he's got it flagged as " used by British paratroopers at Arnhem 1944".
    The elite forces tag strikes again! Not bad for a piece of kit that was standard vehicle issue kit for TANKS!!

    Thanks for posting the other pics as well Recon, nice set showing the "variations on a theme"

    Regards etc
