    Thomas Gill began manufacturing Swords in Birmingham during 1774 and is last recorded at St James, London in 1816. The Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre was used primarily by British Light Dragoons and Hussars during the Napoleonic Wars. The blade is remembered today as one of the best of its time and has been described as the finest cutting sword ever manufactured in quantity. Officers of the famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments and the "flank" Companies of Line Regiments adopted these Swords (The Hit Peninsular War, Book & TV series Sharpe's Rifles featured this pattern of Sword). This original Officer's quality 1796 Sabre by Gill is in excellent condition. It has a single edged, fullered 32 ½” Sabre blade (38" overall). Both sides of the blade have panels for half of the blade length including, foliate designs, arms of Great Britain, Kings Crown & Royal Cypher ‘GR’ (George Rex), Britannia with shield, mounted Cavalry Office. The ricasso on one side has manufacturer detail ‘Tho Gill Warranted Never To Fail’ & ‘1798’ date. Its cross guard with rounded langets, knuckle guard, pommel and leather covered ribbed grip with silver wire binding are in nice condition. The leather has very slight wear consistent with age and use; the wire binding is tight and intact. The Sabre is complete with its original steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings. The scabbard has even patina and no dents. Price for this excellent Napoleonic Wars Era dated Sword by a quality maker with Scabbard includes UK delivery. Sn 12442
