MINT, Cased QE II Commemorative Fairbairn Sykes 3rd Pattern FS Fighting Knife 'Commando 1940 - 1945' By Wilkinson Sword With Etched Blade. (Sn 14558 Daggers & Swords) - 14558
The British Commandos were formed during the Second World War in June 1940, following a request from the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, for a force that could carry out raids against German-occupied Europe. Initially drawn from within the British Army from soldiers who volunteered for the Special Service Brigade, the Commandos' ranks would eventually be filled by members of all branches of the United Kingdom's armed forces and a number of foreign volunteers from German-occupied countries. Reaching a wartime strength of over 30 individual units and four assault brigades, the Commandos served in all theatres of war from the Arctic Circle to Europe and from the Mediterranean and Middle East Theatre to South-East Asia. Their operations ranged from small groups of men landing from the sea or by parachute to a brigade of assault troops spearheading the Allied invasions of Europe and Asia. All Commandos were issued with the iconic FS Fighting knife. This near mint, full size (11 ¾” overall length), 3rd pattern FS Commando dagger was produced post 1952 to commemorate the British Army Commandos WW2 Service 1940-1945. The knife is in pristine condition. The blade is inscribed on both sides and highlighted in gold.
