Letter to the Editor
Canadian Girl Guides
I refer to the "Guiding Girls" article in the May 12 issue. Here is a picture of the Official Knife of the Canadian Girl Guides. The Canadian Girl Guides also started in 1910 and are still going strong. Their Official Girl Guides Knife has a master blade, a can opener/caplifter, square ream and a wire helix corkscrew. The knife was made by Johnson Works, Sheffield. One brass scale is marked Official Knife Canadian Girl Guides with a Be Prepared logo above a maple leaf encircled beaver and other side is RD. No. 717020 for 1925. Both blade tangs are marked Johnson Western Works, Sheffield.
