    I know it must be commonwealth from the stampings but only demo pliers I can find on the net are the US M2 and SOE models..

    The "D/l\D" is Australian isn't it? That could explain the variation.

    Well, if they are Aussie issue then I reckon they are for nutcrackers, Torch ( two sizes ) and a spike on one end for piercing tinnies and a screwdriver for pinching number plates off the CO's staff car!!!!

    Me thinks you're onto something there...can use the driver end for popping off pop top stubbies..safer than using my eye socket!

    Yes, the Broad Arrow has been used by the British government to denote it ownership for hundreds of years and many, if not most, Commonwealth nations use a variation of it as well for the same purpose. Australian uses "D/l\D" to show ownership by the Department of Defense. Skepticism aside see:

    This is from the website of the Australian Army. The photograph nicely shows the marking your pliers have, they are Australian.
