In very good overall condition, the WW2 British Green Howards Officer’s Sword of Captain George Latus Carmichael.
The sword, scabbard, sword knot, Green Howards WW2 book (sell for over £100), discharge paper, belts (name on inside), flag, mounted crest (probably family crest) and his hand crafted bamboo swagger stick, all included. No maker’s / retailer’s name to sword. George Latus Carmichael served with the Green Howards (Alexandra, Princess of Wales’s Own Yorkshire Regiment) throughout World War Two.
The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition with minimal patina spots and firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good condition. The original leather sword knot good, a little aged and cracked. The leather field service scabbard is generally good, as the frog, but the frog strap is worn and cracked. The belts with Carmichael’s name still visible inside. The sword sheathes and draws well. The Story of the Green Howards 1939 – 1945 book in very good condition with Carmichael’s name written inside, so probably gifted to him by the author. All other ephemera in good condition.
This is a bargain with full provenance and plenty of officer research potential. Just £625. Please quote item reference X77. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1327-115x28x26 (4.879).
