Sales enquiries

Named "W J Bradburn" to the belt, Lieutenant Bradburn was transferred from the South Staffordshire Regiment to the Recce Corps in 1941. To be fair, he probably had this sword while with the South Staffs.


The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition with some wear and small patina / rust patches, but not many and thankfully almost all along the blade's edges. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt with a milky tarnish (can be polished out) and speckled small rust spots to the inside of the bowl guard. The grip in good order, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather sword knot and belts with age and clear wear (this sword did not stay in a drawer all its life). The leather field service scabbard in good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Plenty of research opportunity here on a good WW2 sword with provenance. Yours for £425. Please quote item reference V15. Further photos available upon request. Box 0959-102x19x16 (2.345).
