More Fairy Tales?
I happened to be taking some of my knives out for photos and decided to get better pictures of this S.O.E. "sticker." Now for those forumites who have nothing better to do than talk trash, here is a knife to really get you going. This was bought by a very reputable collector from the widow of the S.O.E. Agent who owned and carried it during WW-II. If you have not seen it earlier on this website I have added a couple more photos. It is clearly stamped by the Maker/seller. The S.O.E. Agent was stationed in Poona, India and he may have bought this while passing through Australia. The stamps are "A&P" (Alcock & Pierce) and "DND" (Department of National Defense) on both the pommel and the sheath.
So, How are you going to explain that A&P did not make and sell fighting knives during the war? Tell me once again. How are you going to blame Peter Mason for this one?
