Sales enquiries

A rare NCO's version of the 1912P with faux leather grip and 6th Dragoon Guards markings to the front of the bowl guard. Retailed by Daniels and Co in Woolwich, this sword was a purchase made directly by the regiment. The non-standard (non-War Office) markings are "6 DG" and "2 T", the later presumably for the 2nd troop.

The 35 inch blade is etched with the royal cypher of King George 5th, the same as a regular officer's sword would be. The blade has various rust patches but is overall good and firm in the hilt. The hilt has some aging to it but is very sound, the inside of the bowl still retaining the WW1 black camouflage paint. The faux leather grip is in good general order. The leather field service scabbard is in overall good condition, the sword sheathes and draws well.

Well worth the price as the 6th Dragoon Guards remained mostly mounted throughout WW1 and so this sword would have been right there in the thick of it, whereas many other swords would have been kept in barracks of course. Full sized / additional photos available upon request. Please quote item reference number F34 (865)
