    Item details

    Here is a Victorian Army Chaplains Sword.

    A first for me, as I had no idea that British Army Chaplain's carried swords. Infact, I suspect most didn't, but I am aware of some who carried side arms for personal protection. Therefore, akin to the RAMC officers sword, I suspect this may have been mainly for ceremonial use. 

    This example produced by "Pipe and McGill, Maiden Lane, Strand, London W.C" who were Military Taylors and Outfitters.

    This example would appear to date to the late Victorian period, being equipped with the 1892 pattern blade. The hilt of brass with the VR cypher. Good condition without any breaks or deformation. The grip of shagreen bound in copper twistwire. The blade and hilt are solid, with no movement.

    The blade of standard form, makers details at the ricasso, with floral etching and crowned VR cypher to one side, and the crowned Army Chaplaincy Badge to the other. The blade generally bright, with some patches of dark staining and pitting. 

    33 inch blade

    Housed in a field service leather scabbard.

    A rare, if not unique sword, certainly the only one I have ever seen.

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