A doubled edged steel knife. Estimated £400-600.<br />

A secret guide on how to build a bomb that was disguised as a calendar to be used by members of 'Dad's Army' in the war has come to light.<br />
<br />
The clandestine manual was for the Home Guard acting as a last line of defence in the event of a German invasion of Britain.<br />
<br />
To the unassuming, it would have looked like a normal calendar hung up in a home or office but actually contained instructions into the art of sabotage.<br />
<br />
The rare manual is one of numerous items used by SOE agents and the like during the Second World War to emerge for sale.
