Newbie looking for Info

I am very new to this forum, computers and live in the UK. I am searching for information regarding a knife that my late father gave me 20 years ago, he believed he had been given it by his father who died when my father was 8 years old. It is a folding / locking knife with a 4 1/4" long blade which is approx 3/4" wide and is pointed. At the base of the blade in very small writing it looks like TURNER SUFFOLK WORKS. It may also say SHEFFIELD. It has three small diamonds in a vertical line. The handle looks to be either bone or ivory. The most distinctive part is the "bolster" which is silver in colour, is of a horses head with cannon, anchor and the figure of a kneeling soldier / sailor who may be loading the cannon. The knife is in very good condition apart from a couple of small dents in the "bolster." In the past members of a forum suggested that it may be a commemorative knife surrounding Paul Revere made by Thomas Turner and Co of Sheffield.
I will do my best to get some photos on to this forum but in the meantime if any member has information which may be part of the story of this knife please let me know.
