Sales enquiries

Wilkinson serial number 68417 for 25th August, 1939 sold to Messrs. Rogers & Co. Ltd. (outfitters) just a few days before Great Britain declared war on Germany (3rd September, 1939). So we do not know and likely will never know the officer who bought the sword from that outfitter, but he got it at the outbreak of WW2.

The 35 inch blade is in good but aged condition with some small inert rust / patina spots. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / bowl guard is also good but also in similar condition as the blade; the inside of the bowl guard is stained from now inert corrosion. The grip is worn but good, the twisted grip wire bindings also good but there is a little movement. The leather field service scabbard has a large section of leather missing towards the drag; we have used leather balsam on it all as the scabbard was very dry. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Good example. Just £600. Please quote item reference V52. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1004-121x18x17 (2.173).
