    ~ 1915 British Infantry Officer's 1908 Pattern Sword By Enfield ~


    This is a very well preserved, camouflage painted, First World War British infantry sword recovered from an archaeological site in Ypres.

    It is a 1908 pattern one and comes with its original scabbard.

    The ricasso is stamped on one side with the military broad arrow above the manufacturer’s initials ‘EFD’, for Enfield.

    Beneath is stamped the inspector’s proof mark ‘Crown above 75 E’ and the breaking point cross.

    On the side it is marked with the pattern stamp ‘P08’.

    The other side of the ricasso bears a pair of inspectors stamps ‘Crown above 1A E’ and the manufacturing month and year ’12/15’.

    The scabbard is stamped on the locket with a series of serial numbers and a broad arrow above what seems to be ‘vol 5’.Unfortunately, as seen in the pictures, these marks are not entirely visible.

    The blade developed some darkening, as normal for the age.

    The metal hilt and the scabbard are painted in a dark-brown nuance, the approved camouflage paint of the time.

    The grip is made of chequered wood with a thumb rest.

    The scabbard is fitted with two fixed suspension rings.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 35 inches (89 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 43 inches (109 cm).

    The sword in its scabbard length is 44.5 inches (113 cm).

    It weighs 2.1 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in excellent condition for its age.

    The scabbard and the hilt have some amount of pitting, as expected for a sword buried for so many years.

    There is some minimum amount of rust on it, most of it on the inner side of the hilt and on the joint of the blade and its hilt.

    The blade is clean and free of damage. As said above, the darkening process has started, but the overall condition of the blade is exceptional.

    The wooden grip is very good with minor wear and a small chip, as seen in the images.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
