Sales enquiries

Probably made for an Indian artilleryman of one of the WW1 Indian Expeditionary Forces to take with him to war in the Sinai, Palestine, Suez, and / or Gallipoli Campaigns. Remainder (last part "inson") of Wilkinson mark to the spine plus 1917 dates on both the forte / ricasso and leather section of the scabbard.

In very good order indeed, the 29 3/4 inch blade is almost as new, firm in the hilt. The hilt with some age / wear. The scabbard good. The sword sheathes and draws well. A well above average example. Please quote item reference number F17 (882). Further / full sized images available upon request.
