Both Captains in the 2nd. World War - between them they came-up with this design for a fighting knife. This was to become widely used in desert and jungle close fighting and was widely adopted by many commando units and overseas armies.

They are widely collected and an be expansive - this photo shows the first three patterns - starting with the first one on the left. Hopefully, members will find this useful when making identifications.
