Best I can say is.

GWL and company.

Or

GWL Cossipore...

Its a common marking, but unless someone hunts through hundreds of ww2 Indian trade indexes, or were very randomly lucky one day, we might never know..

Thank you, was interested to understand if it was normal that the scabbard and blade were made by different manufacturers.

i.e. Do the two match as an original pair?

Thanks again.

Within the mk.2 kukri, I dont think the kukri maker firm or arsenal was ever the scabbard maker firm or arsenal....

There probably as original as you will find..
