The King’s Dragoon Guards Regiment was formed in 1685 as The Queen’s Regiment of Horse, named in honour of Queen Mary, consort of King James II. It was renamed The King’s Own Regiment of Horse in 1714 in honour of George I. The regiment attained the title 1st The King’s Dragoon Guards in 1751. The regiment served as horse cavalry until 1937 when it was mechanised with light tanks. The regiment became part of the Royal Armoured Corps in 1939. The regiment saw action at the Battle of Festubert in May 1915, the Second Battle of Ypres also in May 1915 and the Battle of Morvalin September 1916. This is an original, WW1 British 1912 Pattern Heavy Cavalry Officer’s Sword to a named Officer of the King’s Dragoon Guards with its scabbard & Frog. The Sword has an undamaged 35" single edged blade with fuller (43" overall). The blade has staining consistent with age and is etched on both sides with foliate panels and King George Crown with ‘GR’ Royal Cypher (George Rex). The ricasso is crisply marked on one side by the manufacturer ‘Wilkinson Sword Co Ltd London’ together with Royal Warrant. The reverse has the ordnance acceptance star with inlaid brass roundel. It has a full bowl guard with ornate tooled decoration and fish skin wire bound grip with thumb recess. The back of the blade is numbered ‘63380’ which may assist to identify the person who originally commissioned this sword and ‘London Made’. The sword has no visible Regiment / WD Marks or dates. It is complete with its original leather bound field service scabbard. The scabbard is fitted with an original Sam Brown pattern leather frog with brass stud to the front and 2 hanging straps with brass buckles. There are no visible manufacturer or date marks on the scabbard or frog. All leather and stitching of the scabbard and frog are intact. The price for this sword worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 16503
