Still Dangerous In His Old Age

I came across this interview with Trooper Stan W Scott, No. 3 Army Commando, in which he demonstrates the proper use of a Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife. He was giving a lecture at the National Army Museum in London in connection with a 2011-2012 exhibition. The exhibition was entitled "Draw Your Weapons: The Art of Commando Comics"Commando Comics are a military oriented series of comic books dating from the 1960s that are still being published in the UK.

These old WWII veterans fought in a brutal war where both strength and cunning were prized. It shows in his demonstration on how to fight with a knife.


  1. Simply outstanding. Thanks for posting this.

  2. Oh my gosh. Hearing that old fellow talk about the Fairbairn-Sykes knife was the coolest thing I've heard all year.
