Hi Chaps, thought I'd post up my first F.S. knife picked up yesterday for £100. It's got a real been there feel to it & has the owners monogram of HM on the handle. It's marked on the cross guard with the broad arrow & B2. It also has the number 2584756 etched on the blade. Service number?
Looking at this excellent website below it looks like it was made circa 1942 by BSA under license from Wilkinsons: -
British Commando Knife
One question, it's had it's tabs removed from the sheath & a button hole cut in the top. Is that for being fitted into the hidden pocket on para or commando B.D. trousers?
