Default Marsh Arab dagger. Request for translation.

Good day everyone.
This is not a very old dagger, I think not older than the middle of the last century, but it is made neatly and traditionally for this type.
It has an inscription on the back of the scabbard.
Is it possible to translate it?
I would be very grateful for that.

I think Cunningham could have received this dagger as a gift while in Palestine from 1945 to 1948 as High Commissioner for Palestine and Transjordan.

Or did he buy and sign his favorite dagger himself so as not to lose it?

Probably the second, judging by the abundance of smiles

so what kind of dagger is it as the Marsh Arabs are quite some distance away from Palestine ( as far as London or Paris are from Berlin...or Marsh Arabs from Yemen) so I expect the cold arms also differ from those of their fellow Arabs?
Or am I mistaken...? ( mafish haga / I don't know... )
