WW1 / George 5th Scots Guards officer's sword

Sales enquiries

One of the best WW1 Scots Guards swords I have ever handled, with full battle honours to blade up to South Africa 1902. Marked to cutler Thompson of Dover Street in London (1910-1915), so whoever was the original owner of this sword must have seen some action and been lucky if they survived.

The highly impressive 32 1/2 inch blade is finely etched with battle honours and regimental bade for the Scots Guards of course; there is some again and a small number of small rust spots but nothing really. The blade is both firm in the hilt and sheathes / draws well. The hilt is in good order with some aging but not too much. The grip is a little aged but generally very good with the twisted grip wire present and correct. The scabbard is aged and shows some use signs, so maybe this officer saw a long service. The original leather sword knot is a little tired with one broken section but a welcome bonus to have. This fine and scarce sword is priced to sell. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote reference number B06
