Default A genuine WW1 Trench Club ?

Hi,
my research suggests that this trench club is a genuine WW1 relic (there are a lot of fakes made with vicious spikes and dubious Regimental markings).

Lathe turned, lead filled with hobnails embedded in the striking end. The loop seems to be sisel or similar and is spliced together (not knotted).

Length 18" ( 46cms)
Max. diameter nearly 2" (48mm)

Weight 600g nearly 1.32 lbs

Please has anyone any more information on these, thank you

Kind Regards David
