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...

F.M. Good point. I know that a lot of knives, including Sykes Fairbarns 'commando' daggers made in the UK had to be stamped 'Made in England' after the war to satisfy US import rules, so your idea...

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?

That's very interesting. It would indeed explain the English stamp, because presumably anything made to ship to former French colonies would be labelled in French, but English would be much more...

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.

Interesting that it says "Made in France" and not "Fabrique en France". I wonder if it was made for export to some other country.

Apparently Hallberg has been making jewelry in Sweden from the late 1800s to at least the 1970s. I know that's not much help but confirms your guess. I would guess, as you may have, that its a war...

Ok. I'm just always very leary when people add 'para' to thimngs, as too often that is an excuse to jack up the price. But if you recognize the pattern, enough said. Thansk.

French, not British. Not at all like a British side cap: they did not have the leather band that this one does, the badge and buttons are wrong and the cloth is the wrong weave and colour. Sorry!
