A Vietnam souvenir

I have previously posted that my Uncle was a USAF FAC embedded with an SF unit in Song Be (1962). He recently send this knife to my Dad and I picked it up in Boise last week.
The only info I have is this email:

This is an Indian Army WW2 pattern kukri. 17 inches long. It had some wicked rust from the sheath (DON'T store your knife in a sheath). Someone has taken a buffer to it and polished the spine and possibly removed any markings (grind lines near the scales). I've gotten most of the rust off.
