    1957 – 1959 MALYAN EMERGENCY Chinese Insurgent’s Native Fighting Knife & Scabbard With Integral Frog Captured By Private Irvin Commbs Cheshire Regiment. Sn 15412 - 15412

    The Malayan Emergency was a guerrilla war fought in pre- and post-independence Federation of Malaya, from 1948 until 1960. The belligerents were the Commonwealth armed forces against the Malayan National Liberation Army (MNLA), the military arm of the Malayan Communist Party . Support for the MNLA was mainly based on around 500,000 of the 3.12 million ethnic Chinese then living in Malaya. Despite the drawdown in violence in 1960, communist leader Chin Peng renewed the insurgency against the Malaysian Government in 1967; this second phase of the insurgency lasted until 1989. He fled to exile in Thailand, where he lived until his death on 16 September 2013. The Cheshire Regiment was deployed to Malaya in 1957. Private Irvin Commbs a Section Radio Operator with the Cheshire Regiment served in Malaya during the crisis between 1957 & 1959. While in Malaya he reputedly captured this native made fighting knife from a Chinese insurgent (we acquired the knife directly from Pte Commbs family). The knife has an 8 ¾” single edge blade which is 1 ½” wide at its broadest. The blade has staining consistent with age and a contemporary 4mm cut into the back edge near to the hilt. The cutting edge is razor sharp and undamaged. The hilt has a copper ferrule and short, curved tropical hard wood handle. The handle and ferrule are tight and secure. The knife measures 11 ¾” overall length and has its original native made wood scabbard with integral olive cloth frog with belt loop and woven cloth cord. The belt loop has wear consistent with age and use. The scabbard has a contemporary section of wire binding which together with the integral frog secures the wood of the scabbard which is made of 2 sections. The knife fits the scabbard securely. The price for this Malayan Emergency captured fighting knife includes UK delivery. Sn 15412
