    British Heavy Panga Machete WHJ & Company Limited GWH?


    Picked up this Machete this weekend, and the research on this piece has been an enjoyable headache, if you can understand.
    Without the trademark I would have gotten no where at all.

    The Machete is a heavy Panga with horn handle.
    The trademark is a "wild animal" with bayonet.
    The Company name on Machete: "W.H.J. & Co Ltd"
    I cannot find any info on what W.H.J. may stand for, I believe thay are British?
    I did see the same trademark on a Machetes marked "GWH" (see 1st picture of trademark)
    I think "GWH" is a later incarnation of "WHJ & Co Ltd?"


    Please Help: trying to find out company history and date this piece to a possible conflict?

    Thanks in advance for ANY THOUGHTS!


    Any help will elicit much appreciation!!
