Great to see this type of memorabilia Bill. And those knives were definitely not for use in combat.

The toning works well, Bill.

My grandmother had something similar that belonged to her husband and I've no idea what happened to it?

Fascinating memorabilia, and very nicely presented, Bill. It is a fascinating commentary on how the British upper classes perceived warfare in those days - a battle or two shouldn't lower one's standards. Allan

I wonder how much time they had to actually use these utensils?
