Hey Ger, lol No reason as to why I wanted to know just one of them questions I needed to know to help me sleep better
I had a couple of 1st pattern aluminium versions which varied abit. One was a NO maker the other was a horster, but the scabbard fittings were fitted at different points so one was longer than the other (by a few mm lol) The No maker had thicker fittings too, the horster wore very very thin fittings but much tidier looking.
I realise I am rambling unuseful information, so im gonna go lay in the garden.
best wishes matty
ps. I think you need a nice Nickel Luftwaffe sword to complete the grouping!
