You can read a little about Frank Pollard Ellis, R.N by clicking here. The sword is etched to Gieves (made by Wilkinson Sword) and has been replated at some stage (believed during its service life), so the etching is feint. Folding guard engraved "F P Ellis".

The 31 2/4 inch blade is in good condition, etching feint, some small patina / inert rust spots, and firm in the hilt. Folding guard section of hilt works if a little stiff. Hilt generally very good with gilt remaining. Fishskin grip also very good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. Sword knot with some minor wear / staining but still very good. Scabbard good and locates properly with folding guard section. Sword sheathes and draws well. Original belts in good order. All weather bag aged and cracking but sound.

Nice example, good officer, low price; £? (too late, no sold). Please quote reference S35 (0632). Further / full sized images available upon request.
