We at Knife-Point Sheffield are always interested in knife manufacture-related news stories. We have over 30 years of experience in the industry – with historical roots stretching back decades. This influences our fascination with this field of industry; and when we came across this story we found it to be of particular interest.
A historic piece of WW1 memorabilia was stolen between 10am and 1.15pm on Monday 5th May; from a Canvey museum in Western Esplanade. The item is a trench knife or trench dagger; which was taken from a display case within the museum.
Over Bank Holiday Weekend
It is estimated that the incident took place over the most recent Bank Holiday weekend, on the Monday. The knife is thought to have been stolen as members of the public were shown around the museum by volunteers. Allan Reed – a volunteer at the museum – was quick to play up the significance of the theft.
PC Lisa-Ann Gore informed The Enquirer, Essex: “The museum would like to get the piece back as it is very important to them. It is also a weapon and we would like to get it back in safe hands. I would urge anyone with any information to contact me as soon as possible.”
Anyone who may have found themselves being offered the item for sale; or anybody who may have information are being directed to PC Gore at Essex Police. Items such as the knife thought to have been stolen can be extremely valuable; with WW1 memorabilia considered to be of huge importance within the history of product design.
