    MATCHING WW2 DATES, 1943 British WD Paratrooper’s/ Far East Chindit’s Short Machete Fighting Knife By Ralph Martindale & Original WD 1943 Leather Scabbard By ‘BHG’ With Correct Leather Thigh Strap Assembly. (Sn 14830 Daggers & Swords) - 14830

    An original WW2 Paratroopers/ Pilots short machete fighting knife by Ralph Martindale. These weapons were originally made for British Paratroopers / Chindits operating in the Far East during WW2 (see pages 109 and plates 250 & 250A on 110 in 'British and Commonwealth Military Knives' book by Flook). The machete has a heavy blade which is 9 ¾” long and 2 ¼” wide at its widest point. The grips are a chequered composite material and are secured by three copper rivets to prevent rusting. The handle has some surface wear consistent with age and service use but is totally intact and secure. The butt is holed for wrist cord. One side of the blade is stamped with the War Department arrow together with 1943 date and manufacturer’s registered Crocodile trademark and name ‘Martindale’ (illustrated in image 2). The blade has some staining consistent with age but no damage. The machete measures 14 ¾” overall length. These weapons are not usually found with their scabbards. This example is complete with its original leather scabbard which has a single retaining strap with press stud fastener, riveted and stitched body and leather strap assembly with buckles for belt or leg carry. The rear of the scabbard towards the lower edge is impressed with WD arrow and by the manufacturer ‘BHG’. It is also stamped with matching 1943 date. There is also a contemporary hand written ink name ‘Barratt’ most likely the name of the British Soldier who was issued with this machete (all illustrated in image 2 ). All leather stitching and rivets are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14830
