WW2 1st pattern FS Commando fighting knives were initially produced in 1940 with large 3" cross guards but the cross guard size on 1st pattern's was soon reduced to 2" due the larger cross guards snagging on clothing. Many collectors doubted the existence of these 1st type 1st pattern knives as examples were rarely if ever seen, however, Ron Flook in his book The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives describes and illustrates correspondence produced by Wilkinson Sword dated 1941 which contains a request from the War Office to produce knives with 2" cross guards rather than 3" (see page 68 of Flook's book plate 5.8.). This superb 1st pattern FS Commando dagger with 1st type 3" cross guard was most likely produced in the 1990’s by Wilkinson Sword to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the FS Fighting Knife. The full size knife is in near mint condition. The ricasso is etched on one side with panel ‘Wilkinson Sword London’ together with crossed swords legend. The reverse has ‘The F-S Fighting Knife’ at the ricasso. The 1st Pattern nickel plated handle and cross guard retain their original finish. The dagger is contained in its original wooden box with hinged lid covered in green leatherette material. The case has clasp fasteners. The inside of the case is lined in green felt & white silk & is contoured to snugly fit the dagger. The silk is emblazoned with the Wilkinson Sword name & Crossed Swords legend together with Queen Elizabeth II Royal Appointments all in Gold.

The Loyal Regiment (North Lancashire) (until 1921 known as the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment) was a Line Infantry Regiment of the British Army that was in existence from 1881 to 1970. In 1970, the Regiment was amalgamated with the Lancashire Regiment to form the Queen's Lancashire Regiment which was, in 2006, amalgamated with the King's Own Royal Border Regiment and the King's Regiment (Liverpool and Manchester) to form the Duke of Lancaster Regiment (King's, Lancashire and Border). The Loyals were one of seven County Regiments recruiting in Lancashire. Their depot was at Preston, and the Regimental district also included the towns of Bolton, Chorley, Farnworth, Hindley, and the Isle of Man. The Regiment saw much action during the Boer War, WW1 & WW2. Colonel Thomas Myles Sandys (12 May 1837 – 18 October 1911) was a British army officer and Conservative Party politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1885 to 1911. He was born in Blackheath, and was the only son of Captain Thomas Sandys of the Royal Navy. Following education at Shrewsbury School, he was commissioned as an officer in the 73rd Bengal Native Infantry, a military unit of the Honourable East India Company. After fighting in the Indian Rebellion of 1857 he exchanged into the 7th (or Royal Fusiliers) Regiment of Foot, part of the regular British Army. He was to serve in the 7th Foot for twenty years, retiring with the rank of captain. He moved to the family's ancestral home, Graythwaite Hall, near Ulverston, Lancashire. He continued his association with the armed forces as honorary colonel of the 3rd (Militia) Battalion of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, a position he held until 1897. He was a staunch Protestant, becoming Grand Master of the Loyal Orange Lodge of England and was a deputy lieutenant for the County of Lancashire. In 1852, he leased the mining rights of his land at Roanhead to Kennedy Brothers. The mines were the among the most productive in the area and worked until 1942. The Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 created the new constituency of Bootle, and Sandys was elected as the first member of parliament for the seat. He held the seat at subsequent elections, either being elected unopposed, or by a large majority. He resigned his seat in March 1911.He died later that year, at his London home, 87 Jermyn Street, aged 74. He is buried in Brookwood Cemetery (a contemporary image of Sandys is illustrated in image 3).
