1902 Patt British Westminster Dragoons Cavalry Trooper's Sword

Sales enquiries

This is a rare sword made exclusively for the Westminster Dragoons by famous maker Hamburger Rogers & Co, the same maker of course who make trooper sabres for the Household Cavalry.

Marked "2 CLY (2nd County of London Yeomanry) 40 (trooper number 40)" to both the scabbard and inside of the guard (so the scabbard is original to the sword which is a bonus). Remnants of war time (WW1) paint exist, so I presume this sword was present at the Battle of Gallipoli in August 1915 and perhaps the Battle of Jerusalem (a Battle Honour for the Westminster Dragoons).

The 34 1/4 inch plain blade is in good order and firm in the hilt. The hilt a little rusted and stained as to be expected. The ebonised (black wooden) grip is in good order. The sword sheathes well. Get it while you can, this is a rare sword. Further / full sized photographs available upon request. Item reference number 575 (209)
