This is an excellent British RN sword & dirk collection to a distinguished WW2 RN Commander. Commander Caton served with the RN between 1939 & 1961.

There are 2 copies of images of ships he commanded HMS Sparrow 1949 and HMS Fortune 1940.

The Naval Officer’s sword has an 80cm long blade faintly etched with foliate panels and Kings crown. There is no visible manufacturer mark.

The langet is signed ‘ROE Caton RN’. The hilt is fitted with original cord (portepee absent). The leather scabbard with brass fittings is in excellent condition. The leather sword belt is in excellent condition and is gold leaf marked by the manufacturer ‘Gieves’. The belt has the correct RN buckle and hanging straps with clips.
