Bletchley Park's picture

This video contains a brutal description of knife fighting during war time. Warning: This video contains graphic descriptions of Commando combat. Trooper Stan W Scott, No. 3 Army Commando, demonstrates the use of the Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife. 

The Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife was a dagger-like implement that was issued to British commandos like Stan W. Scott, interviewed in the video below, during World War Two. In the video, Scott gives a brutal description of some of the deadly techniques employed by special forces against their enemies. 

These stories are pretty chilling coming from a man who stormed the beaches of Normandy as an airborne commando.
