Sold Item Notice

OK, so it is a straight forward Royal Navy officer's sword which just happened to be owned and worn by a RNVR Wireless Telegraphist Lieutenant named "G Goulding". During WW2 Wt. G Goulding would have served at the Admiralty or a major naval establishment in the UK or abroad. Plenty of research potential!
