Passchendaele – 3rd Battle of Ypres Digging up the past

My Father-in-law, whilst digging in the garden, had the good fortune to find this commemorative knife, which looks to have been designed as a letter opener. From what I can make out, it appears to be made from a shell casing. If anybody knows any different or has discovered a similar item, I would love to hear from you.

 

You just never know what you’re going to dig up next!!
