Barbed Wire Cutters

Good evening
I am a volunteer at St. Neots Museum responsible for the Great War Display. During the WW1 commemorations, we were loaned a pair of Chater Lea Barbed Wire cutters. They are wooden handled and 20" in length overall. 

These have now been donated and are effectively displayed in our on-going WW1 cabinet but I would like to create a poster showing useage.

Chater Lea (still in business) do not have copy of a barbed wire field training manual or similar and I wonder if any members could help. Many Thanks. Bruce

Apologies for delay in reply as I've been away. Many thanks for the photos, just what I needed for display.

Regards

Bruce
