    Default WW1 Trench Clubs British and Canadian

    Here are my 2 trench clubs. The first one is a British officers club made from a wood shaft, with a lead knob hammered on. The knob is woven in leather, and leather covers the top part of the shaft. the rest is some sort of hardened woven fabric. It almost seems like melted wax was absorbed into the fabric material. And a basic leather wrist strap.

    The second is a bit if a jimmy-rigged club made by a Canadian soldier. The shaft on this was made of a heavy spring increasing the blow when swung. There is a leather bag, filled with little shot pellets, and woven in leather. Thick string and a tree sap like substance (which is crusty and mostly gone) were used to tie it all together. I'm guessing there was some sort of wrist wrap on it but the glue/string is coming loose so it may be lost.
