    Default Canadian F & W Mills 36

    This is the Mills 36 that came with the 3rd Pattern F/S dagger I posted in another thread, this is complete ( I forgot to put the spoon on), still has the red and green paint on it, made by F & W ( Frost and Wood) they made farm machinery before WW2 and were the largest makers of Mills in Canada during WW2

    Very nice looking #36. I believe the red 'XXX' meant
    'HE' - High Explosive, and the green stripe indicates
    that it could be used in humid conditions.........

    Thank you, that's not them all as I have another case with some of my better ones in it.
    I just took a photo of that case, I cannot open the door for a better shot as there is a pile of Military stuff in front of it.
