1908P WW1 British 1st Life Guards Cavalry
Trooper's Sword, Sold
In good to very good condition, a World War One (dated June 1915)
British 1st Life Guards cavalry trooper's sword, scabbard and full
frog / suspension mounts.
Blade marked to EFD ("Enfield" small arms factory), it
is highly unlikely that you will ever find another WW1 1LG trooper's
sword in such good condition.
The 34 3/4 inch blade is correctly marked to EFD (with War Office
/ crown acceptance marks) and dated "6 15" for June 1915.
Blade firm in the hilt; the guard in excellent condition for its
age, some slight plating weaknesses here and there, but not too
much. The inside of the bowl guard marked with the date (6 15) and
"1 L.G." plus the weapon / rack number "179".
The composite grip is in good condition. The steel scabbard is a
little aged. The leather frog parts are very good, though a little
aged. The sword sheathes and draws well.
