But do they match the thread criteria?
Good pic, pace stick, ammo boots and sash all in one pic
In the op it saidBut do they match the thread criteria?
Was the '80s Nowill knife made forty years after WW2 a WW2 item, and more importantly is it still issued ?
Even as far back as the Falklands war the MOD had virtually no stocks of third pattern knives and had to have a rush order for and extra 250 to be made.
For me, something like a modern third pattern that can be bought as a private purchase isn't the same as a WW2 mess tin, millvank bag or other item that was made during WW2 and is still held as an issue item in stores.
Nope, but the thread was about things still issued/held as far as I saw.In the op it said
Mark 8 torpedo: Developed before WW2, this was still in Royal Navy service into the eighties, and was used in 1982 to sink the Argentine cruiser ARA General Belgrano.
Are you suggesting it was made in ww2 and not fired until 1982
