Pte Burden,
The Item you have queries about is a current issue 'MOD Survival Knife'. It comes with a w*$k cheap leather scabbard. There is a newer PLCE DPM scabbard out now though.

I was issued one about 3/4 years ago for an ex. in Norway. It's good for chopping and f%*k all else, but it looks good on your kit!

I expect you'll be giving him a bigger thankyou when he gets round to blancoing his largepack and filling the bandolier with 50rds of inert .303...

Where did you get the E-tool carrier - Greame?

Capt B - you need to ask about and borrow a copy of the film: They Were Not Divided (thats presuming you have not seen it.) When you've watched it you can put Greames name in 'the book' too....
