Thanks for the kind comments and for looking
Would look much forward to photos of your collection. I've come across many of your posts and admire as to what I've seen.
Would appreciate photos of those two Sheffield's.
Outstanding that you have history with both the one carried by the BTN Surgeon, and one from 113th CAV Veteran.
One of the earliest knives I got was a J. Nowill & Sons (Est. 1700) Sheffield.
The M3 from the 103rd is even more special from your description.
You're most welcome; pleasure to view your posts.
