    WW2 1939 British 1895 / 1897 Pattern Flights Ltd London Infantry Officer’s Presentation Sword To Sgt Major A.G.A Mines RAMC On His Appointment To H.M’s Commission’ Acorn Knot Scabbard Sam Browne Frog. Sn 17136:7 - 17136:7

    This is an original 1895/97 Infantry officer’s sword presented by members of the Sgt’s mess No.1 Company to Sgt Major A.G.A Mines Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) 24th February 1939 on his appointment to His Majesty’s Commission. These swords were a great improvement on previous patterns with better protection to the hand through its ¾ basket hilt (see page 179 of World Swords by Withers & pages 165-167 of Swords of the British Army by Robson). The sword has a 32 ½” single edged blade with partial fullers. The blade has its original leather hilt washer. The ricasso is marked by the manufacturer ‘Flights Ltd London’. The reverse has the ordnance acceptance ‘proof’ star and roundel. Both sides of the blade have etched panels featuring the Kings Crown, Heraldic Arms and King George VI Royal Cypher ‘GR VI’ (George Rex) and RAMC Regiment device. It has the correct ¾ bowl guard voided with foliate design and ‘Kings Crown VI GR’. It has the correct fish skin grip with wire binding which is tight and intact. One side of the blade has a crisp panel with presentation detail (illustrated). The back of the blade is numbered ‘17287’ which may assist to identify the date the sword was commissioned. The back of the blade is also etched ‘Made In England). The sword is complete with its leather covered field scabbard which has a brass throat mount and frog strap. It is fitted with its original leather sam browne frog with 2 hanging straps and correct brass stud and brass buckles. The leather and stitching of the scabbard and frog are intact. The price for WW1 presentation sword worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 17136:7
