A circa 1946 F-S Fighting Knife. commando's silk map and paper's relating to Sergeant Kenneth Alec John Scott, DCM.

Sales enquiries

By repute, the Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife issued to Sergeant Kenneth Alec John Scott (Distinguished Conduct Medal) after his release at the end of WW2 (his original F-S having been confiscated by the Gestapo). I bought this knife in a parcel of items related to Sergeant Scott at the same auction and from the same vendor where his medals were sold.

Being sold separately are his rare concealed dagger with leg harness (Click Here), and his Webley MK4 .38 revolver (Click Here).

The blackened 6 7/8 inch blade is in very good order and still sharp. Everything firm, the cross guard marked "Sheffield England" and with a broad arrow. The WW2 era commando silk map is of Italy and South East Europe, so perhaps he was assigned to duty in Italy at the end of the war (British troops were stationed there to deter any invasion by Yugoslavia). Also included is the original stores issue document for his original kit (what he was issued with during the war) and a copy of his DSM citation. Full sized photos available upon request. My item reference number is 846b (380).
