Sounds great. Always a plus to get a full gilt pommel. But, no pictures yet.

Thanks for showing these items. I know next to nothing about uniforms. and headgear. I do see loops for a ribbon bar and at least three perhaps four badges.
Nice looking dagger and hanger. I have never had a painted handle in hand for a close up inspection.
So I can't comment on much. I do appreciate your sharing of your find. Was it a Vet. pickup?

Hi Joe unfortunately I have no info on how it was acquired etc....... all three of the items are matching in both condition and quality The painted wooden grip is about as perfect as one can hope to find I remember not too long ago when collectors wouldn't touch them now they are very difficult to find, especially in really decent condition as the grips are prone to chip and I would imagine more than a few were swapped out with celluloid grips thanks cheers and best, R
