Red Swiss army knife

Back in about 1990 I bought my Dad a small red Swiss army knife for xmas(one of those with a little knife,scissors, toothpick and tweezers). Sadly he died in 1993 and amongst his belongings was the knife which I kept and carried around in my brown leather shoulder "man bag". About 10 years later, one night I was mugged near my home(in Harringay). Despite not losing my phone or wallet I lost my brown shoulder bag and therefore the knife.That was the only thing I was really bothered about. Go forward about 4-6 months. I'm in the Fara charity shop in Teddington, some way from Harringay, but coincidentally very close to where my Dad's family lived (Twickenham, Sheen,etc). I spotted a nice looking brown leather shoulder bag (hold on, it's not the one I lost!). It's nice, but £20-25? (I'm maybe unreasonably tight when it comes to charity shop prices). Not sure. Bit big? Bit expensive? Walk about and think, but go for it. Go down the road and get a coffee and inspect my purchase. I unzipped the little inside pocket out of interest. And yes, you can guess, there was the same type of Swiss army knife. Unfortunately I mislaid it a few years ago. So if you find one (remember it's a small red one), wherever you are, it could be my Dad's...
