Mk3 Argyll and Sutherland Scottish piper's
Originally WW1 issue, later converted to ERII compliant Argyll
and Sutherland piper's dirk.
Wilkinson made, this Mk 3 Scottish regiment piper's dirk was originally
issued by the War Department in WW1. It was then handed down to
a piper of the Argyll and Sutherland Regiment who became a piper
during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 2nd. He had the blade replated,
the original "Teddie's Hat" replaced with the ERII St
Edward's Crown, and an Argyll and Sutherland badge added to the
The rear of the upper scabbard mount is marked "QM 12"
which I believe means the 12th Quarter-Master from WW1. The 30 cm
blade is in very good replated order; you can still see the Wilkinson
name one side and MOD acceptance mark the other. Further pictures
available upon request. Item reference number 606 (236).
