Glamorgan Rifle Volunteers – 19th Century officer’s sword.

Out of stock

SKU: 6877 Category:

An unusual British military officer’s sword and scabbard.   The blade is etched with owner’s initials and the name “2nd GLAMORGAN RIFLE VOLUNTEERS” – also royal “VR” cypher, crown and scrolling foliage.  The hilt is of 1897 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword pattern with a King George V royal cypher making it date from c.WW1.  What is likely with this sword is that it was originally owned by the father and he passed the blade onto his son who replaced the Victorian hilt with a contemporary example – it was probably taken to war in WW1.  It is likely that the original owner can be traced as the initials have been etched to the blade forte – see pics.  Blade is in excellent condition with crisp etching throughout.  Complete with brown leather Field Service scabbard.  Blade length is 33 inches (40 inches overall).
