Great pics everyone - Thanks for sharing

@ Nick4 - I put those San Marino images in the 111mm Rescue Gallery in the Wiki - I knew you would not mind!!

@ Storm - So they took your knife off you when you left - Bummer
You could only do that with a Vic as they are such high quality and last for years, so can be recycled !!

Couldn't give exact time frame for beginning of issue but the New Zealand Army was issuing soldiers to troops from 1973 on (a friend had one from basic back then) . From approx 2003 on, the Victorinox centurion is the issue knife (handed back as I left the army regrettably 🙁) Ive since got my hands on a replacement which ill get a pic of up when i remember. As far as i know, none of these  had national flags etc or other markings.
