    WW1 1915, 1908 Pattern British Heavy Cavalry Troopers Sword By Wilkinson Post WW1 Issue To The Royal Irish Constabulary ‘Black & Tans’ With Scabbard. Sn 12553 - 12553

    The Black and Tans officially the Royal Irish Constabulary Special Reserve, were recruited to assist the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) during the fight against Republican Terrorist Groups primarily the IRA (Irish Republican Army). The force was the brainchild of Winston Churchill, then British Secretary of State for War. Recruitment began in Great Britain in late 1919. Thousands, many of them British Army veterans of World War I, answered the British Government's call for recruits. Most of the recruits came from Britain, although it also had some members from Ireland. Their role was to help the RIC maintain control and fight Republican terrorism. The nickname "Black and Tans" arose from the colours of the improvised uniforms they initially wore, composed of mixed khaki British Army and rifle green RIC uniform parts. This is an excellent original, WW1 British 1908 Pattern Heavy Cavalry Troopers Sword which has its bowl guard contemporaneously painted with tan paint specifically for the ‘Black & Tans’ with its original scabbard. The Sword has a 35 " single edged polished blade with fuller (43" overall). The ricasso is marked ‘4 ‘15 (April 1915) with inspection marks and the reverse by the manufacturer ‘Wilkinson’ together with inspection/ proof marks. The back of the blade is stamped ’08 (1908 Pattern). The hilt is fitted with its original leather washer. It has the correct full bowl guard and stippled brown composite grip with thumb recess. The guard has no visible Regiment Marks but these may be hidden by the ‘Tan’ paint finish. It is complete with its original steel scabbard with fixed hanging rings. Again there are no visible Regiment marks. The scabbard has no dents but has surface service wear to be expected. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12553
