Argentina : Falklands War Trophy - 1909 Pattern Combat-knife / Machete with Scabbard. This weapon was apparently brought back as a trophy by a NCO with 2 Para at Goose Green during the 1982 Falklands War. This pattern knife was originally adopted by the Argentinian Army in 1909 when they were made by Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie of Solingen, Germany. The blade and scabbard are modelled very much on the German S98/05 bayonet as made by that company but without a blade-fuller. The pattern has continued in use and more recently been produced in Argentina. Overall length in scabbard 51.5cms, blade length 37cms. The knife and scabbard are matching serial numbered "G00647" and both are in excellent condition. The blade ricasso is marked on one side with the Argentinian crest over "E-A" and on the other side with the manufacturer's name "Industria J.C.Suarez Cia. Argentina". The blue finish to the scabbard is unblemished. The wooden slab grips are held in place by rivets and the whole rather fearsome weapon is in top class condition. Rare. Payment by cheque or bank-transfer please. BUYERS OVER 18 YEARS OF AGE ONLY. UK CUSTOMERS ONLY - I WILL NOT POST WEAPONS ABROAD.

Note : In 1859, as a result of the perceived threat to the United Kingdom from the growing conscript armies on the Continent especially that of France and, given further impetus driven by a public outcry for improvements in the country’s defence, a new Rifle Volunteer Movement, based on that of the Napoleonic Wars, was rapidly formed to great popular acclaim. In the same year this led to the formation of the National Rifle Association (NRA) designed to encourage rifle shooting by the introduction of a great annual National Rifle Meeting open to both Volunteers and all-comers. There marksmen could compete for valuable prizes. To achieve this it was necessary to ensure that the ranges, initially on Wimbledon Common and later at Bisley, were readily accessible by train. As a result a special relationship developed between the Association and the London & North Eastern Railway in fulfilling these aims.

Both pot and pan are etched with the original owners name 'A.Jitschin'. Soldier A. Jitschin was captured by the Russians and spent many years in Soviet captivity when this mess-tin remained with him as his most valuable possession and a veritable life-saver. Use of the tin over many years eventually resulted in a hole being worn in the base of the pot. This was very skillfully repaired with a copper plug by a fellow PoW allowing use of the tin to be continued until the PoWs were released in the '50s. This mess-tin was eventually passed on to another German veteran friend who passed it on to me for my collection in September 1975.

Many German servicemen received this medal during the First World War War. Nice condition.
