If you type 'Pradel French knife' into Google, an identical knife shows up. I can't access the sites with the Pradel history but this seems to be one of theirs.

Not sure what country but I'd say probably civil airline, from the shape of the central device.

The arm badge looks as if it has been moved or is a replacement - there seems to be a line of stitching holes above it on the sleeve. Any idea why?

Sadly, it reeks of put together. A Trinidadain in the Commonwealth Air Training Plan would have been in an RAF uniform with 'TRINIDAD' patches on his shoulders. Atlantic plus Pacific is unlikely...

Yes, and when you get to cruise liners and so on, lots of cabing stewards wear insignia which wouldn't disgrace a real rear admiral! Same for a few of the commercial air lines - senior pilots in...

I agree - a mishmash: Polish WWII insignia, plus Brtish DFC plus modern jet pilot badge plus Virtuti Militari [probably WWII]. Possibly two relatives who both flew or fought for Polans, more likely...

Powder buckets were used to carry charges to muzzle loading cannon, which the British stopped using in the 1870s. So, the stamps and the object are not even close to being a match. Also, the crest...

I would have said mountian boots as well, based on the hob nail patterns, but I suppose offciers could have worn them. Was there a separate pattern of hobs for officers?

Brecht, thanks for the info. on the nails - I wasn't aware of that being done but it makes sense for drivers. I still think the boots are very new/unused, but that doesn't disagree with your theory...

I'd say, judging by the oil lamp and the horizontal steering wheel that the truck is WWI vintage and may be painted in WWI 'dazzle' camouflage. Perhaps the soldier is at a museum - in Germany or...

The hob nails appear to have been removed or ground down on the black pair, which suggests to me that they have been modified for sale outside the forces/UK. Which would also explain the continental...

Perhaps the quality is duue to the manufacturer or, if it is a group from someone American - which I assume from the Purple Heart reference - it is a tailor's copy rather than an actual issue piece.

The owl is perched on a sword. Or, actually, a 'falchion' if you wish to be technical - a medieval style of sword carried by yeoman and such rather than nights.

The owl, like hawks and eagles,...

I think the crown is too high for a Brodie, though the ngle of the photos makes it hard to be sure. Any private purchase helmets would, I think, have been made to the same pattern as the issue lids,...
