Greek ceremonial dirk
Ceremonial' is thought to refer to full dress. Attached to the scabbard is a brass plate, which is engraved with the circumstances of the dirk's presentation to the National Maritime Museum which are as follows 'CEREMONIAL DIRK OF A ROYAL HELLENIC NAVY CADET PRESENTED TO THE NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, GREENWICH BY THE GENERAL NAVAL STAFF ATHENS, GREECE DECEMBER 20th 1965'. It is not known how long this dirk was in service, it is very similar to that of the Royal Danish Navy, which is hardly surprising in view of the origins of the Greek Royal Family.
