Oh it certainly worked Alan !
A bloke in our mob used to delight in saying confusing things to new recruits, (Willie Fitzsimmons again, Brian !).
Instead of asking for a can opener he would say "lend me your KF 6314". American design, I suspect. Most of us had one on our keyring. I have one amongst my junk somewhere, I'm pretty sure the catalogue number has changed, wait out.

Hi all,

Not seen one of these for 50 years; we had them in 1951, and guess they originated in WWII, maybe slightly different design. Yes they did work

I've just dug out the one I have. It's a right manky old thing, stamped 1966.
Interestingly, the number stamped on it is 3614, not 6314 as I remember it being.

You sometimes get these when on self catering holidays around the Med or Canaries though I haven't seen one for a year or two now.

Camping shops do sell them.

We used to get them in every 4 man ration pack.

Just found mine. I have two, one has no markings at all and the other is stamped 1975, with a NATO Pt No - 129-9982. The reason I own two is because I was a proper Soldier - one best and one working! Laughing Laughing

My neighbour has just popped round and he has on his keyring a can & bottle-opener like mine that his son got in 1991from a ration pack when he was in the Theale Army cadets on a camp weekend. The number on it is 1988 W.P.W. [war dept up arrow- this site does not allow font - Wingding3 which has the arrow!!] 189-9962. This is posted by my neighbour! Thank you for reading.
