Need Help Identifying a Couple Military Knives

#1
Just received these from my grandfather who passed away recently. He brought them back from WW2 and I thought I'd seek your advice to determine if they have any historical significance or context related to that war. The first is a German Linder Messer bowie knife and the second has "Philippines 1945" engraved on the blade. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
