    RARE, British Pattern 1896 Mountain Artillery 'All Ranks' Sword (North West Frontier Era) India Stores Department ‘ISD’ & WD Arrow Mark, Regiment Marked 1/191 & WW1 1915 WD Marked Scabbard. Sn 14314 - 14314

    In 1896 a special Pattern of sword was introduced for all ranks of the Mountain Artillery Batteries. This pattern of sword is one of the rarest of regulation patterns and was used by British & Indian troops during campaigns on the North West frontier & WW1 (see pages 228-230 of Robson's book Swords Of The British Army). This is an excellent original example. The Sword has a 29 ½” single edged blade with fuller (35 ¼” overall). The blade has staining consistent with age but no rust and the cutting edge no nicks. The ricasso is marked on one side with the India Stores dept ‘ISD with WD arrow’ mark and the reverse with Regiment mark ‘1/191’ below WD arrow. The back of the blade has indistinct lettering (all marks illustrated). It has a brass flat bow guard and correct grooved cast iron ribbed grip. It is complete with its original correct leather scabbard with brass mounts. The throat mount and chape have small inspection marks. The chape is dented but secure and intact. The leather is impressed with ’15 (1915) date ‘WD arrow above AO’ mark and Crown inspection mark. All stitching & leather of the scabbard are intact. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 14314
