Christine Baker would appreciate some help to identify these tools, dated 1918.

Kevin da Silva thinks they are a saw wrest for a military chainsaw

I agree with Kevin de Silva.
Here's some evidence - an eBay listing of a WW1 hand chain saw, complete with a wrest like Christine's, though without a handle.
www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW1-British-Army-Trench-Saw-Dated-1918-Jabez-Cliff-amp-Co-Walsall-Leather-Case-/142228635637?nma=true&si=42yTBtgbD5Cy5uUGBJGu1UsFeHY%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

If that link is dead by the time you view this, just do an image search for WW1 chain saw - they are not rare and are popular with militaria collectors.
