Here is the rare classic " Indian" made F-S knife, complete with its original leather scabbard and frog.

This pattern of knife is thought to have been issued to the 44th Indian Airborne Division.
Here is an early pattern 1943 dated Airborne Denison smock made and labelled by Hoffman and Sons in a large size of height 6' to 6' 2" with a breast measurement of 42" to 44" The zip pull is missing, woolen cuffs original and have some wear. All the Newey press studs are present. Overall condition is good with no rips or tears and the cammo patterns are strong with little fading with age. The smock has been worn but not worn out. The Tail (under fork) on this pattern of Denison was not designed to be secured inside the smock and just hung loose, it has been cut off but it was in one of the pockets and is a perfect match where it was removed.
Other than the zip and tail it is a great early pattern example.
