The 33 3/8 inch blade is in very good condition but with some pitting and staining towards the point end. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt with most camouflage paint remaining a little distorted / damaged but not much. The black scaled grip in very good condition. The black sword knot probably a later addition. The heavy steel scabbard with most green camouflage remaining is in good order. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nice to have a sword that shows horse vets rode with swords with the cavalry they supported. A nice, nice £600. Please quote item reference AC45. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Box 0284-1.18 (3.115).
