Sales enquiries

By repute (details from who we bought this from confirming this) the sword of Capt. Alick Bartley Brady Moore of the 6th Duke of Connaught’s Own Lancers, then aide-de-camp to the Viceroy of India (Marquess of Linlithgow), then aide-de-camp to Governor of Victoria, Australia (Sir Winston Duggan).

The sword is etched to the "Army & Navy Cooperative Society 105 Victoria St London" and bears the serial number 15072 to the spine of the blade. It is likely Alick Bartley Brady Moore bought this when he was commissioned as a Lieutenant into the 6th Duke of Connaught’s Own Lancers in 1933. Plenty of information is available on the web for this officer, including of his marriage to Joy Armitage in St Pauls Cathedral in Melbourne in 1940.

The 35 inch blade is in sound condition but has rust pitting around the main etching area. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt overall good but with rust patches around the edges. The grip and grip wire both good. The leather sword knot and scabbard good for age though with wear. The carry bag aged and with small holes and stains. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Great to have a named officer's sword with plenty of scope for research. Grab it quick, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AC47 (0292). Further / full sized images available upon request.
