I always see these refered to as "tanker models". Yes I know the were issued to the tank corps. But in this case its RAF marked, so would this be a "airplaner model"? The War Dept never, ever designated it as a "tanker"!!!

The " Tanker" model generally refers to the spurless hammer version which was designed so the hammer did not snag on clothing, equipment etc while in confined spaces. ie inside a tank.
I don't believe that was its official designation but is given by collectors themselves to differentiate the two versions.

Yes
But if you look at the period holsters the hammers were covered. Just a moot point.

I posted my "tanker" several years ago on the Gunboards Forum and got some nasty responses from the Brits! The "Limey's" told me never to refer to it as a "tanker"!! LOL
