A Sgian Dubh is Gaelic for small blade. Might be worth trying to return it.

it's a letter opener

that's all I know
 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


Thanks Trinity! That actually makes sense - first thing I noticed was that it wasn't very sharp, so a letter opener makes sense.

And yes I do plan to try and return it. Looked up the name, no luck but I will keep working on it tomorrow.

Ammunition was replenished and batteries were made ready for firing. The Damage Control Officer, Commander C.E. Aldrich, USN, from his station in Central Station, reported that without power nothing could be done to correct the list. The Engineering Officer, Lieutenant Commander J.F. Delaney, USN, reported that all fires were out, all power was lost and it was impossible to correct the steadily increasing list.

Patricia Aldrich Reynolds passed away on October 23, 2002. She was the wife of Captain Luther S. Reynolds, CEC, USN (Ret). They had made their home in Jacksonville after his retirement from the US Navy in 1962. They were married in Honolulu, HI in 1941. She was the daughter of RADM and Mrs. C.E. Aldrich, US Navy (Ret)


Clan MacFarlane claims descent from the original Earls of Lennox, though the ultimate origin of these earls is murky and has been debated. The nineteenth century Scottish antiquary George Chalmers, in his Caledonia, quoting the twelfth century English chronicler Symeon of Durham, wrote that the original Earls of Lennox descended from an Anglo-Saxon – Arkil, son of Egfrith. This Arkil, a Northumbrian chief, was said to have fled to Scotland from the devastation caused by the Harrying of the North by William the Conqueror, and later received control of the Lennox district from Malcolm III of Scotland.[5] However, today it is generally thought that the original Earls of Lennox were of Gaelic descent.


Someone will have the answers.

you're good -- thinking CE Aldrich who was a Lt in 1964 can't be the father of a woman who married someone who retired as a Captain in 1962, though

USN United States Navy. It was a gift for something that Lt Aldrich did or a memento of his honorific inclusion in Clan Macfarlane. It looks like a letter opener, but may really be a symbolic dagger (not meant to be used as a real weapon).

I have no idea who the clan MAcfarlane is, Least ways not in relation to the Navy.

1964 is obviously the year this honor was bestowed.

Re: Need help: Hubby found this small knife today on the ground, where's if from? Just curious...
I saw the knife listed on ebay - I'm a descendant of MacFarlanes, and my sons are Naval officers (a LT and a Lt Cmdr). I was going to buy this for my son for a Christmas present, but decided that since I live only a few miles from the family in NJ it belonged with them! Hoping I win the bid, then I'll contact his family and give the knife to his great-grandchild, where it belongs. So thankful for the information - wish it were listed a little cheaper! LOL Wish me luck!
