As the title say's this is a bit odd. I was watching a bit on France 24 news about the UK forces in Afghanistan last night, and I noticed almost all the soldiers had "fighting" knives strapped onto vest/ankles (WWII commando/Para's style)/thighs. I had never noticed Brit's wearing them so much untill now, I'm not sure what unit they were though. I had only really ever seen that much knifeage in WWII photos/film. Just curious to why it seems to be in vogue again?
