Leondes

You will probably do better posting this in the Imperial Militaria forum, I think.

And the '7/2' very probably indicates #7, 2nd Coy or 2nd Troop. Very nice.

Various groups wore helmets with a white band around them and letters I believe, including air raid wardens , ambulance and rescue squads and so on. Perhaps even munitions workers - with a white...

WWI British/Canadians had a special vets or tunic for machine gunners [Lewis gun] to carry their weapons, with special shoulder pads and all. I suspect this is an equivalent item, perhaps for Bren...

The serial number in the Canadian Army was assigned to Lance Corporal Harry Frye of the 6th Infantry Battalion, so its not his. I agree that somebody has added US bars to a British medal for some...

I do not think this is a Snider Enfield bayonet [Pattern 1853]: the 'wing nut' on the locking ring is wrong and the scabbard is very definitley not British issue. The British ones had a brass chape...

No mystery, didier. As Byterock says, its an obsolete Knights of Columbus cloak clasp.

I'm not sure those markings are Arabic, unless they represent numerals. The arrangement: 1, 2, 3 suggests something decorative to me.

Spot on, Pzrwest. This has never been a complete grenade. But I'll bet unused stocks of the shells were cheap to buy in 1921, or even 1931, and would have made great souvenirs.

I think the top tie may be missing. Each lower lace went through an eyelet, then the one above went through the loop in a kind of 'daisy chain' until the top loop went over a button or buckle or was...

I agrdee that it is almost certainly post war. The supply of grenades was never so generous that some would have been diverted to make ink wells - the 1915 date refers to date when the pattern -...

And they were worn by British, Cdn, Aussie, Kiwi and South African units. Some had different coloured dicing on the bands and different coloured touries [pompoms] but this is pretty close to the bog...

Yes, I'm not sure what would make it a "fighting knife" as opposed to simply a knife with a locking blade, which were not at all uncommon. Probably 98% of the knives made in Sheffield between 1800...

I'm sure the collectors have expressed interest! If you're thinking of selling it, it might be worth your while to consult an auction house as well. Not sure the plate is in that rarefied...

Oh, I am embarrassed! Stared typing finger without engaging brain. Thansk for correcting that, Infanteer! Any thoughts on the blacking? A Rifles unit perhaps, for parade and show?

Not '08 with the rivets like that and the thin brass keeper clip by the buckle. It's 1937 pattern , so WWII or later. Apparently some of the Aussie issue was blackened and post war stuff as well...

Lovely stuff, John. I assume you've checked out the hallmarks on the button by now. The cross belt plate is a particularly fine example to a very rare units, I think.
