    About this item

    A scarce George V Royal Marine Artillery Officers Sword.

    It was retailed by a Portsmouth outfitter Trayler and Co. Ltd. who were igh Street between 1914 and 1941. Trayler&Co Ltd  purchased swords from both Wilkinson Sword Company, and Robert Mole, this being an example of the latter.  Mole sold out to Wilkinson in 1920, so this example must have been made prior to that, likely during WW1. It was a good quality, and expensive sword to buy in its day.

    The guard is of 1821 three bar Royal Artillery pattern , with stepped pommel and chequered backstrap. The shagreen grip bound in twistwire, all complete and with no losses. The plated hilt with some rust and areas of loss. The hilt retains the original sword knot, although this is now detached and in need of some attention.

    Very clean 35.5 inch single fullered blade with bearing the original owners details of "B.J.F." the feathered lightning bolts and fouled anchor, surmounted by the words "Royal Marine Artillery". To the otherside, the Kings crown, with battle honour "Gibraltar" below, the Royal Marines globe badge, and thier motto "Per Mare, Per Terram". Generally bright with original polish, some areas of light staining, and old grease, which could be improved if desired.

    Housed in its original brown field service scabbard. Slight bend to the drag, and some scuffing, but generally very good.

    An uncleaned and untouched example of a scarce sword, which should respond well to some gentle cleaning, and with excellent research potential.

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