Ex GPO Engineers

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there who worked for the GPO repairing telephone lines during the war or just afterwards?


Penknife collectors come across single blade, all-metal, grey coloured, folding work knives similar to army jack knives, but with GPO 1946 or whatever date stamped along the handle.


There are conflicting views about who were issued with these knives - some say they were for opening mail bags - others say they were for GPO engineers.

Any help would be appreciated.
