I am working here in Iraq with some great Aussies. discussing things in general, one of them asked me about scabbard restorations. His great grandfather, winner of the MC and 2 Bars (Respect due to that man!) left him the sword, but the scabbard is in need of repair. It is a normal British Pattern brown leather over wood WW1 job.

Any ideas? Anywhere in the UK is OK, as I can sort it out.

A short piece on the Man, Capt Oliver Woodward, 1st Australian Tunnelling Company, MC and two Bars, is at:
