    This knife was given to me by a British soldier from the Queen's Lancashire regiment when I was deployed in Bosnia in 1996. They served in the same area as I did which was known as the Anvil area of Bosnia. In July of 2006, the regiment was amalgamated with two other Northern infantry regiments to form the Duke of Lancaster's regiment.[​IMG][​IMG]

    It's a shame I don't have some of the other items I was given. One of the Gurkha's from the first Royal Gurkha regiment gave me a kukri and another British soldier gave me a British MOD or Ministry of Defence knife. I donated them to a military museum that has since gone out of business.

    Wow... Just amazing... I remember being in school back in the mid to late 90's when we got a refugeegirl in our class, some truly horrific stuff happened in Bosnia back then... A lot of our soldiers came home with ptsd after Bosnia, a lot of the same soldiers was also deployed to Jugoslavia...

    There were a lot of horrible things done during that war. As to being part of the Peace implementation Force, I truly believe to this day that it was a noble mission.

    I don't believe the United States does. I really enjoyed my time in Bosnia. The people from all three ethnic groups treated me very well. Additionally, I got to work with English, Scottish, Australian, Dutch, Belgian, German, French, and soldiers from other countries. I am still in contact with three of my interpreters.

    After tying and retying lanyards, I decided that this guy needed a simple lanyard.[​IMG]
