Nice WWI military issue Kurki Rich.  Here is one that was brought back from the China, Burma, India Theater (CBI) by a US P-38 pilot.  He said he bought it in a local market and kept it while overseas.  He also brought back a very large folding knife that he said he wore while flying "just in case he needed it".  Quite a fellow who also had a reel of his gun camera film that he would not let go of.  He was quite adept at strafing runs according to the film.

Rich,

 

I'm guessing the "43" is the year made. Is the "ATD" the english acceptance marking? Thanks.

    Great information.  I have had this for years.  Is this military?  INDIA and the arrow are the only markings.

    May be W.W.2. But it was surplus and India stamp added for import rules from what I read.  Rich A. in Pa.
