This could be my first military find!
However, the only other ‘look alike’ I can find contains a rather uncertain description of it as a Boer/Crimea/WW1 piece of British officer’s kit.
Any interjections that refine the date and place of origin are welcome. The place where this washed up did see British soldiers go past at (almost) all the mentioned stages.
After reading this history of the fork, I am inclined to believe it is early based on number of tines. And this, albeit brief,history of British military kit suggests that separate cutlery pieces were carried by the enlisted. I too lean early but am uncertain, please help.
