Unfortunetly it is not an addition to my collection, but a friend was fortunet to add it to his. He relishes his privacy but O.K'ed me to post some pic's. I'll let you guy's figure out whom the original owner was. Hope you enjoy and please forgive my poor photography skills.

Correct !

Yes, Fred Stephens artical on it appeared in " The Armourer ". Rob McDivitt provided a 42 page research file which is very informative as well.
Believe you me when I tell you I almost passed out when this deal came together. My friend is an average guy of average means and to be the keeper of something the likes of this is unbelievable.

Yes was sitting at dinner when it hit me.The Armorer (Just after 6.30pm here)
The dagger was sold by REgimentals in the UK.Cant remember where it came to them but can find out as he lives only close by.
Cheers
