    Victorian, 1866 Dated Huddersfield Rifles British Pattern 1827 Rifle Brigade Officer's Presentation Sword With Etched Blade To Major Greenwood (Former Captain IV Company). Sn 17681 - 17681

    Originally raised as the King’s Royal Rifle Corps in 1755, the Rifle Brigade was officially formed in 1800. The Regiment was always renowned for its individuality both in uniform & tactics and its 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 usual Royal Cypher with strung bugle in the hilt cartouche. Most Victorian era swords are from Volunteer / Militia Units and the blades marked accordingly (see page 174 of World Swords by Withers). The Huddersfield Rifles was a unit of Britain's Volunteer Force first raised in 1859. It later became a battalion of the Duke of Wellington's Regiment in the Territorial Army, serving as infantry on the Western Front in World War I and as an air defence unit during and after World War II. This is an original 1827 Pattern Officer’s presentation sword & Scabbard. The sword has an undamaged 32 ½” blade (38 ½” overall) with partial fuller. The blade is etched on both sides including 'Crown' (Victoria), the badge of the Rifle Brigade and ‘VR’Royal Cypher (Victoria Regina) together with foliate panels. The blade also has the ordnance acceptance star at the ricasso and an etched panel on one side ‘Presented By The Non-Commissioned Officers Of No.IV Company To Major Greenwood Their Late Captain As A Mark Of Respect And Esteem Huddersfield Nov 1866’. There are no visible manufacturer marks on the sword. It has the correct voided full knuckle guard with the Rifle Brigade 'Crown with bugle' badge and curved stepped pommel. The fish skin grip with wire binding is in excellent condition. It is complete with steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings and shoe. The scabbard has even patina. The price for this sword worthy of further research regarding the Huddersfield rifles and the named Officer includes UK delivery. Sn 17681
