NO QUEENSBURY RULES ( Fairbairn and Sykes 1940 -1942)

 

This is a follow-on from the book THE LEGEND Of W.E.FAIRBAIRN, Gentleman and Warrior, The Shanghai Years by Peter Robbins. No Queensbury Rules basically picks up the story from Fairbabirn and Sykes return to the Uk in 1940. This copy is from the first printing which had some errors in production such as some page numbers being set on the wrong side of the page. An interesting book with some rare photos but partially let down by reliance on now discreditted sources such as Mason and Pilkington.  But has a lot of information, despite the title, about Sykes life in Shanghai. £20 incl UK postage.

THE FAIRBAIRN SYKES FIGHTING KNIFE AND OTHER COMMANDO KNIVES

 The research that has gone into this book reveals for the first time the World War 2 contract records as detailed by the Ministry of Supply, and provides proof from the records of Wilkinson Sword that the almost mythical 3 inch crossguard 1st Pattern F-S knife did exist.  The book also gives details of inspection marks found on F-S knives and those responsible for such inspection, and provides illustrations of many of the variants of the knife that can be found.   Chapters on fakes, the F-S knives of other Nations, and other types of knife used by the Commandos of World War 2 are also included.


Softcover.  263 pages, 463 black and white images.
