    ~ 1796 Pattern Heavy Cavalry Trooper's Sword By Wooley ~


    The pattern 1796 Heavy Cavalry Sword was the sword used by the British heavy cavalry (Lifeguards, Royal Horse Guards, Dragoon Guards and Dragoons), and King's German Legion Dragoons, through most of the period of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. It played an especially notable role, in the hands of British cavalrymen, at the battles of Salamanca and Waterloo. The pattern was adopted by Sweden and was used by some Portuguese cavalry.

    The sword comes with its original metal scabbard which has both suspension rings.

    The guard is stamped 'Q D G' for the Dragoon Guards.

    On the blade the maker's mark 'G' (from Wooley and Co) is still visible. The name on the flat is worn away. There is another 'crown' proof mark on the ricasso.

    The scabbard has traces of the 'Wooley' mark.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blades length is 35 inches (88.9cm) and the overall length of the sword is 39.5 inches (100 cm).

    It weighs 1.77 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    As expected, it had signs of wear but its overall condition is good.

    The blade several nicks but no rust.

    There is also the expected amount of pitting for a blade of its age.

    The grip has some loss.

    The scabbard has several creases and dings.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
