WW2 Burma Campaign Chindit Special Forces, Fighting Knife / Combat Bowie & Scabbard. ED 2470 - ED 2470

The Chindits – officially in 1943 designated the 77th Indian Infantry Brigade and in 1944, the 3rd Indian Infantry Division were a British "Special Force" that served in Burma and India in 1943 and 1944 during the Burma Campaign in WW2. This is an original combat bowie carried by Chindit troops. These fighting knives were manufactured in India during WW2 and come in a number of variations. An example the same as ours is illustrated on page 205 plate 493 of Flook’s book British & Commonwealth Military Knives. AS is common with these knives there are no manufacturer or date marks on our example. The wood slab grips are secured to the Tang by 3 rivets. The grips have knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. It has a single edged 6 ¾” long blade with correct Bowie type tip. The blade has staining consistent with age. The correct original scabbard is made of leather, stitched along the edges and has a single belt loop to the rear of the scabbard. The scabbard has the correct leather retainindg strap with eyelet and brass stud. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2470
