1821 Patt British Light Cavalry Trooper’s
Authentic 1821 Pattern British light cavalry trooper's sabre made
by Deakin, complete with scabbard.
This example is in fair to good condition; the 1821P cavalry trooper's
sword endured a long and harsh service life. This Deakin made sabre
was carried by trooper number 42 of the Surrey Yeomanry Cavalry.
The blade is in good condition but the hilt, grip and scabbard have
suffered a little the test of time (and a bit of dampness). The
leather grip is complete and firm but very tired. The hilt has rusted,
so too the scabbard. But the sword is firm and a scarce example.
