Ok thanks Abby.
I wasn't sure if you reject the soldier argument altogether, or just the 2-man theory.

I readily admit your proposal of a man with two knives is quite feasible, it's just the caveat...

Some of the latter points you raised Darryl seem to indicate you misunderstood the argument, they were never proposed.

Ah yes, but he hadn't graduated to the peaked cap yet then?



I wonder what he used his penknife for?
Maybe he was know as Jack the Whittler in those days?
