A very clean and untouched WW1 George V Scots Guards Officers Sword.

This example retailed by "W. Cater&Co Ltd, 56 Pall Mall S.W." The company was at this address using this business name between 1913 and 1917, so certainly a WW1 sword.

1854 pattern Guards hilt, bearing the regimental badge of the Scots Guards. Shagreen grip is complete, but the wire is absent. Original knot to guard, but the acorn in absent.

This example has a 32 inch blade which carries battle honours up to and including "South Africa 1899-1902" the crowned GV cypher, and the regimental badge. It also carries the original owners initials, " D. L. R." which opens an avenue for research.

Housed in its original field service leather scabbard with guards pattern frog.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
