I agree: the handle is standard to poor quality for a working knife and the blade, though it seems to have been chromed, doesn't appear to be exceptional either. I suspect he had a batch of the...

Looks like two pips on the shoulder, so a 2nd Lieutenant. The closed collar is war time issue, as the open collar came along in 1949.

That is a mcuh more inttersting theory than mine! And would certainly explain the sand finish, though I thought that was a WWII pracice myself. Very interesting puzzle.

Not a Jedburgh collector at all, so no dogs in thsi fight, but the fact that the pieces are/may be Aussie and British and that these have turned up in various places smells just a little off to me. ...

I can understand museums selling off excess stock, especially in areas unrelated to their primary collecting mandate. It's a pity however, that they couldn't find, on the centenary of WWI, a museum...

The 1851 Census of canada shows a clutch of 'Umlah's living in Halifax - John, Mary and Richard - which would make sesne for a military/ex-military family.

The style is a new one for me too, but I'd think values of other private purchase periscopes woulf give you a 'ball park' figure to shoot for. Very interesting piece.

No offence to the dealer or you, but once I'd found a dealer 'improving' things I'd be very leary of future dealings with him/her!

Me too! What a shame that they felt these were not of interest but couldn't find another museum to take them, though no offence to you, Dave. The 3rd Battalion one is particularly nice.

I can't place it exactly but I have a vague notion that the emblem is I've seen for one of the civilian groups - not Fire Watch, but something like it. 'Chemical' something is what comes to mind. ...

In the abscence of any markings - you don't mention any - almost certainly private purchase and I'd say WWI, as they were much less used and useful in WWII, which was much more mobile and not trench...

Is there a difference? I would have thought the crown stayed the same throughout His Majesty's reign and only changed on his death to the Queen's Crown.

I've seen reference to dog's head pommels on swords but hadn't run across this version, but I'm certainly no expert on swords either.

The detail does look very fine, which was one of the things that made me think it might be a good repro. The originals were, after all, made by the lowest bidder! And I suspect you're right...

Toledo is also the centre of a massive market in swords for the tourist and fantasy trade. This, to me, has the look of one of those. The blade in particular, so far as can be seen from the photos,...

I believe the originals were stamped tin, or tin-plated iron, as are the reproductions I've seen worn by War of 1812 reenactors. I have no idea whether this is an original. The workmanship appears...
