WW1 GV British Army (Infantry) Officer's
In overall good condition, a WW1 GV British Army (Infantry) Officer's
No maker's / retailer's name to the blade, so probably made 1916
to 1918 at the height of WW1. The hilt / guard has the remains of
brown camouflage paint, so it was intended / used / worn in the
field of battle.
The 32 3/8 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the
hilt. The steel hilt with remnants of camouflage paint in very good
order. Grip and grip wire good. The field service leather scabbard
is in poor condition (perhaps you can source another to make this
a very respectable WW1 sword - no, sorry, we can not help with another
scabbard). The sword sheathes and draws well.
A really nice sword at just £? (too late, now sold). Please
quote item reference U64 (0941). Further / full sized images available
