Original Royal Canadian Navy officer's name, A B Rivers RCN to the folding guard, this George 6th / WW2 sword is marked to Wilkinson's of London, though unusually has no serial number to the spine.

A B Rivers RCN

George 6th

Fouled anchor

Unresearched, so someone with some time could have a worthwhile hobby researching A B Rivers; I only know he was an officer during WW2. The 31 1/2 inch blade is very well etched and in very good condition with only a few rust spots and which are thankfully away from the etched area with covers 3/4 of the blade. The blade is firm in the hilt which retains some worthwhile gilt. The fishskin is a little grubby but could be cleaned up. The twisted wire grip bindings are all present and correct except for a little wayward section on one turn. The sword sheathes and draws well, the folding guard section locks perfectly onto the scabbard retaining pin. The scabbard is aged but commensurate with the sword. A very good example. Further / full sized images upon request. My item reference number is 853 (371).
