Sold Item Notice

This is a very well used British 1908 Pattern cavalry trooper's sabre from the First World War. Originally dated 1913 and then re-dated 1915 (when it was reissued with a new scabbard bearing the same year) with a good number of inspection marks to the blade's ricasso means it has been around, quite likely even seen action in early WW1 when cavalry still were used.

The darkened bowl (for field service use) has a few small dings but nothing much, the blade some patina, the grip a little worn (from being held) but overall in very good order. The scabbard is mostly good, one retaining screw missing but the blade still holds inside well enough. This sabre was made at the Government owned Enfield small arms factory. Further pictures available upon request. Ref: 167
