    SUPERB, British Pattern 1827 Officer's Sword With Etched Blade By Gaunt & Son Presented To Capt A.F. Hordern CBE AFC KPM On His Retirement 1926 While Serving With The South Staffordshire Regt (He Later Became Chief Constable Of Cheshire Police). - ED 2185

    Archibald Frederick Hordern CBE AFC KPM was born on 15th June 1889. He entered Sandhurst in 1913 and became a Flight Officer with the Royal Flying Corps and served throughout the Great War gaining the rank of Captain. He was awarded the Air Force Cross on 10th October 1919 and this was published in the London Gazette 14th October 1919. He became Adjutant on 9th March 1923. He then joined the South Staffordshire Regiment before retiring on 4th May 1926. He then joined Cheshire Constabulary as an Inspector on 29th June 1926 and became Chief Constable in 1935. On 16th July 1935 there was a special parade of the Constabulary held at Wigan drill hall to welcome the new Chief Constable. He was awarded the CBE in 1942 and the King’s Police Medal. He was later invested as an Officer in the most venerable order of the Hospital of St John’s of Jerusalem. He died on 17th April 1950. This is his original 1827 Pattern Officer’s Sword presented to Captain Hordern on his retirement from the army in 1926 presented by the Sergeant’s Mess of the 5th Battalion South Staffordshire Regiment (the 1827 pattern is defined by an all steel hilt coupled with the strung bugle in the hilt cartouche, see page 174 of World Swords by Withers). The sword is in superb condition. It has a pristine 33” blade (39" overall) with partial fullers. The blade is beautifully etched on both sides including King’s Crown ‘GR’ Royal Cypher (George Rex) together with foliate panels. The blade also has the ordnance acceptance star with inlaid roundel at the ricasso and an etched panel on one side ‘Presented to Captain A.F. Hordern AFC by members of the Sergeant’s Mess 5th Bn The South Staffordshire Regiment on his retirement May 4th 1926’. The ricasso is also etched & blued by the manufacturer ‘JR Gaunt & Son Limited Late Edward Thurkle London & Birmingham’. It has a nickel plated voided full knuckle guard with correct Rifle Brigade 'Crown with bugle' badge the outer edge of which is later engraved ‘East Riding Constabulary’ indicating that the sword was used for ceremonial purposes by Hordern while serving as a Police Officer. The hilt has a curved stepped pommel with ball end. The fish skin grip with wire binding is in superb condition. The guard is fitted with original leather strap/ cord and 'acorn' knot. It is complete with nickel plated steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings and shoe. The scabbard is in similar excellent condition. Price for this superb sword & scabbard to an Army Officer & Police Chief Constable who served with distinction in both roles and worthy of further research includes UK delivery. ED 2185
