    The stripper clips go to the Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk1. Could you post more pictures of the knife please?

    What ever the knife is whoever owned it obviously liked it because it has been sharpened until nearly none of the blade is left! The spurs maybe military related and the compass is a private purchase item (available from places like the army and navy store) it dates from anywhere from the Victorian era to WW2. I have no idea why the stripper clips would be chromed.

    Thanks for your help. As to the compass that would make sense as in the box there were items from Victorian wars and from WW2.
    Thanks, Glen,

    Normally anything that is actual military issue will be marked with acceptance stamps to show it's govt property-for British stuff the 'broad arrow' or perhaps the royal cypher of the King/Queen at the time-a lot of things were also private purchase (usually by officers) used in service but not issued by the forces-for something like spurs when both civilians and soldiers rode horses it can be difficult to tell.

    PS The chromed charger clips would be for display with dummy rounds and perhaps a Deac rifle 'wallhanger'.
