This superb original Wilkinson is an incredibly rare wartime Third Pattern with a polished blade (now dull with age) the standard pair of etchings and an incredibly rare (for Third Patterns) personal etched banner to ‘SEAMAN J.W. BURNSIDE’, I cannot recall ever seeing an etching to a ‘Seaman’..! A full length blade at 6⅞”and near flawless with just a few areas of age staining. All etchings are clear and strong. The pommel nut is totally untouched and original. The mould number is ‘1’. Overall finish to the hilt is around 99%. The knife comes with its original and correct scabbard also in superb condition, even the elastic retaining strap is still intact just a little stretched.
