    WW1 Scottish Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Officer's Broadsword By Sanderson & Newbould Sheffield With Etched Blade Cross Guard Engraved 'R.A. Clarke Good Luck From H. Walker' & Field Scabbard. Sn 10094

    The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Princess Louise's) was an Infantry Regiment of the British Army until amalgamation into The Royal Regiment of Scotland in 2006. During the Crimean War The Highlanders earned the sobriquet of “The Fighting Highlanders” and carried with it the status of having been the original “Thin Red Line”. This title was bestowed following the action of the 93rd at Balaclava on 25 October 1854 in which the Highlanders alone stood between the undefended British Army base at Balaclava and 4 Squadrons of charging Russian Cavalry. During the Great War the Regiment gained 78 battle honours. 431 Officers and 6,475 Other Ranks lost their lives and 6 Victoria Crosses were awarded to the Regiment. This is an original WW1 Era Scottish Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Officer's Broadsword (See page 185 plate 176 of Robson's book Swords Of The British Army). The sword measures 40" overall with a 33" double edged fullered blade which has beautifully etched panels on both sides. One side is etched with foliate design incorporating the Scottish Thistle emblem and 'Crown GR' (George Rex) and the ricasso marked by the manufacturer 'Sanderson Bros & Newbould Ld Sheffield'. The reverse is etched with King's Crown and Heraldic Shield Arms. The ricasso also has the ordnance acceptance star. The blade is fitted with original leather washer. It has the correct medieval appearance hilt with nickel plate fittings, flat straight diamond shaped cross guard with ball ends, ribbed ferrule and bell shaped pommel cap with holed ball end. The base of the pommel cap has remnants of original red tassle material. The cross guard is engraved 'R.A. Clarke Good Luck From H. Walker'.
