Salaams Cathey, It must be rather strange since the Basket Hilt is virtually a Scottish Icon and along comes The Mary Rose and a total Eclipse occurs... I suppose the weapon could have joined the ship with its owner from European regions(or even from Scotland!!) ...Well if ..(as they say) ...only they could talk? ! Thank you for the details.
