George V British 1st Life Guards (Household Cavalry) Officer's Swordpic 75 1

Sales enquiries

The initials on the blade are "G S C H" for George S. C. Hayes. Surgeon Captain George S. C. Hayes had a long military career but was only with the 1st Life Guards at the end of his service before he retired (February 1911 to December 1912). Which is why this sword is in such, well above average condition.

You can see Surgeon Captain George S. C. Hayes's uniform here, though they got their years wrong, no doubt perhaps confused by the battle honours.
