Sold Item Notice

An unusual sword in that it has a dyed green leather grip, no doubt to match the British 21st County of London (Surrey Rifles) Regiment's uniform. This sword has the owner's / officer's initials to the blade, C W H. The royal cypher is difficult to determine buts looks to be Edward 7th, so it may well be possible to identify the officer.
