Originally raised as the King’s Royal Rifle Corps in 1755, the Rifle Brigade was officially formed in 1800. Initially Officer’s carried a lighter version of the 1796 pattern Light cavalry sabre, later adopting the 1803 pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword with strung bugle motif placed within the knuckle bow. The Regiment, always renowned for its individuality both in uniform and tactics, it was no wonder that they eventually gained their own distinctive pattern of sword. The 1827 pattern is defined by an all steel hilt coupled with the replacement of the usual Royal Cypher with a strung bugle and Queen’s Crown in the hilt .This is an excellent, original example 1827 Pattern Sword with Scabbard. It has a 32” long elegantly curved blade with fullers (38 ¼” overall). The blade has just light staining consistent with age and is etched on both sides with foliate panels including Queen’s crown & ‘Chatsworth Rifles’ within panels (one of the oldest Volunteer Corps. In 1915 the 16th (Service) Battalion Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment was inaugurated by the Duke of Devonshire and took the name Chatsworth Rifles). One side has the stylised ‘VR’ Victoria Regina monogram. The blade has the ordnance acceptance star with inlaid roundel at the ricasso on one side together with panel containing stylised Eagle, latin motto ‘Multa Tuli Fecique’ (I have suffered and done many things. This motto features on Coats of Arms Of The Matlock Families 1817 and before ) and stylised Monogram. The reverse has manufacturer detail ‘Henry Wilkinson Pall Mall London’. The back of the blade is numbered ‘6623’ (The number dates the blade to 1855. Wilkinson keep extensive records of their blades and enquires with Wilkinson may reveal the name of the Officer who commissioned this sword). It has a voided knuckle guard with the correct Rifle Brigade Queen’s crown with strung bugle motif, curved stepped pommel with ball end and wire bound grooved wood grip with skin fish skin covering. It is complete with steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings. The scabbard has light staining consistent with age and just a few small dents.
