Default trench club

hi all, found the site while trying to research a trench club i inherited from my grandfather. the one you posted is identical, 12 hobnails etc. ( except for 18 rings on the handle ) am trying to post some pix. he served in the 14th batt royal irish rifles and fought at the somme as part of the 16th division. as for the club, im not sure where he got it. i also inherited a trench spade and on a visit to the somme centre here in n.ireland, the same one was part of the german exhibit!! so not so sure if he picked up the club from an axis trench as well? any help appreciated, good luck, tony
