WW1 Scots Guards Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

A good picquet weight WW1 Scots Guards sword by Wilkinson, serial number 56288 for 1918. Blade with initials "D K J G" which means 2nd Lieutenant DKJ Graham who was made honorary 2nd Lieutenant in 1917, so it appears he rose from the ranks.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is well engraved with battle honours both sides. Firm in the hilt, the hilt with some plating loss but good and sound generally. The grip good but aged. The sword sheathes and draws well into the leather field scabbard which is aged, some stitching coming apart, but sound. A great sword with the chance for original owner research. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number C63 (655).
