WW2 JAPANESE NCO’s KATANA, PRESENTED TO BRITISH OFFICER.

This is a very nice aluminium hilted NCO Katana. With most of the brown paint remaining on the alloy hilt. It also has a very nice polished steel blade with no blemishes or edge damage. Very bright and clean. The scabbard has perhaps over 50% of the original green paint. What makes it even more interesting and somewhat historical, is the small rectangular silver plate, permanently riveted to the obverse scabbard. It is engraved “ Presented to Captain R.P. Allison by H.Q.B.M.A . Malaya 1945”. This was the Headquarters of the British Military Administration, and was based in Kuala Lumpur. It was the interim British Governnemt and handled the Japanese surrender and the situation afterwards. There are many pictures of the Japanese surrendering their swords to British officers on record. I have not completed any further research on Captain Allison, he may prove to be an interesting subject. He obviously bought this home with him after the war and it’s now been released into the collectors market. A great sword!

THIRD REICH GAU DAY BADGE OR RALLY BADGE 1938.

I’ve not seen this one before, but then again throughout the 1930’s there were 100’s or even 1000’s of different Day Badges issued. This one is dated 1938 and on the reverse the actual days 24-26 July. Gelsenkirchen. Round badge, silver (?) plated. A nice eagle and swastika in the center surrounded by flags (?). Around the edge ‘Gautreffen-Gauwestfalen-Nord’. Some age oxidisation but complete with pin.

THIRD REICH DEATHS HEAD RING.

As part of an original souvenir/bring back selection of items. This original nickel silver Deaths Head ring was amongst the bunch. Well defined details, and well made this has been worn a lot and is quite worn. Looking at it carefully it could have once had precious stones inserted into the eye sockets, but am not certain. These types of rings were very popular with members of the SS and many versions existed.
Good display item with insignia etc.
