WW1 Royal Canadian Dragoon Guards Trooper's Sword, dated 1914

Sales enquiries

The Royal Canadian Dragoons fought with distinction throughout World War One; this is one of their swords. Dated December 1914 to the blade, this means it was issued to a trooper while they were training on Salisbury Plain that same month, before setting off to the killing fields in France and Belgium where they fought in the 1st Canadian Division and the Canadian Cavalry Brigade (AKA The Canadian Expeditionary Force). The inside of the bowl guard is marked "B" over "RCD" (B Squadron of the Royal Canadian Dragoons).

The 35 inch blade, marked to Mole, is in very good condition but with some minor aging towards the tip, and is firm in the hilt. The bowl guard is good, as is the grip. Steel scabbard also good, some patina marks, not too many. The sword sheathes and draws well.

The Royal Canadian Dragoons are a legend from WW1, with many battle honours; this sword was there in the thick of it. Superb, just £?. Please quote item reference number AC25 (0028). Full sized / additional photos available upon request.
