    Hi Ian, very interesting swager stick. I had to laugh when I saw this. I have stereotyped British officers always carrying these ever since I was a little kid and watched the fictional movie "Bridge Over the River Kwai". I believe it was Sir Alec Guiness, who was the British officer that always walked around with one under his arm. It's burned in my memory for life! Thanks for showing!

    Hi Ian,

    My late father was for a few years before he retired a senior instructor with 5DG RAC at Bovington camp —not that it has anything to do with your nice example swager stick though
    I collect, therefore I am.
