George 6th British Royal Army Ordnance Corps
Officer's Sword (sold)
A scarce WW2 era Royal Army Ordnance Corps officer's sword in
good to very good condition.
One of the most uncommon 1897P infantry swords, one etched to the
Royal Army Ordnance Corps.
The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, a couple of minor
patina areas, nothing major. The blade has the Royal Army Ordnance
Corps arms and motto one side, and a crown the other; interesting
in that it is a crown alone, not the royal cypher of King George
6th, so the blade will not go out of date unless the crown does.
The hilt has some rust spot areas but is good overall. The black
fishskin grip and twisted wire bindings all very good. The leather
fields service scabbard and sword knot are in good order. The sword
sheathes and draws well. Further / full sized images available upon
request. My reference is 791 (332).
