1896P WW1 British / Indian Mountain Artillery
Wilkinson Sword, Sold
In very good condition, a Wilkinson made British / Indian Mountain
Artillery sword, dated 1917.
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
