The mail person (not sure you can say man anymore!) has been good to me.

Box a little worn

[Image: 78e6ec5c5224ae748f65_1.jpg]

but look at the text on the top - 'Pat. in Great Britain'

Like the British Bostonians this is clear that the case and blades are made in the U.S.A. but the 'holder' is made in England

I have to go back and check but the instruction book looks a little different too

The interior of the case is marked that it is made in the USA too

The razor or holder is clearly made in England though with the British patent number too.

I'm told that it was present to 'Kev' (a very Australian abbreviation for Kevin) by his father (PA being another Aussie term) on his return from the war in 1948

I'm VERY happy to be the current custodian of Kevin's razor and am looking to track down more information if I can. All these pics are pre-cleaning too BTW.

Just when I was getting a little bored with collecting these two new additions come along!

Mark, someone may have just printed that MADE IN England on the razor?

... and on the box?

... and removed the Made in U.S.A from the razor

... and added the 'Case Made in U.S.A' to the case

OK, maybe not Rolleyes

The same thing has happened with some Bostonians so the treatment is consistent with similar era razors.
