Description: A fine example of the 1854 Pattern Guards Officer’s sword by Wilkinson. The hilt and plated blade are complete. The grip retains all of its shagreen and the wiring is complete.

There are some minor areas of tarnishing to the plating on the blade. This sword was sharpened in preparation for war in 1914. The metal throat is missing from the scabbard, there is what looks like impact damage to the body of the scabbard and there is some damage to the chape.

He served with his battalion in France in 1914 and was killed near Mons in Oct 1914. he is buried at the St Julien Dressing Station Cemetery. Further information supplied on purchase.
