WW2 No 6 Commando push dagger group

This group of items are the former property of Private Harold Ernest Nethersole of 6 Commando. Items included what is pictured

- Robbins of Dudley unmarked push dagger in sheath
- No 6 Commando shoulder titles and Combined Operations formation signs, all removed from uniform
- veterans type green beret with Buffs cap badge (Harry’s former unit)
- Commando 50th anniversary Medal
- Egypt cigarette case ‘From Harry To Dad Egypt 1947’
- Commando Veteran Association scarf

My research so far has found that his parent unit was The Buffs and he served in Normandy in 1944. Harry died in 2018. I have a number of photographs of him at reunions in Normandy.

These Robbins of Dudley type punch daggers have always fascinated me because little is known about them compared to say FS knives. I do have a few books on them but it doesn’t answer whether these unmarked ones were made during WW1 or WW2, or both. I’ve seen in a couple of places references to this same unmarked knife being made in WW2. What is interesting is that the IWM has an identical knife with No 4 Commando provenance

WW2 Battledress Trousers

Early pattern with label and issue stamps for 1942. Large size 15. All brass buttons present. These have a fair few holes here and there so please be aware when buying these and make sure you’re happy, they are far from mint condition. Would suit a combat mannequin perhaps where the condition is less important. Very fair price.
