British Light Cavalry officer M1796

Officers carried fighting swords very similar in form to those of the trooper version, though they tended to be lighter, at around 1lb 13oz.

Curved blade etched with scrolling foliage, stands of arms, crowned GR cypher, crowned Royal arms and a small maker's panel for WOOLLEY & SARGANT, regulation steel stirrup hilt, wire bound leather grip, contained in its steel.

The word is in very good condition but they have a little looseness in the hilt.

Total lenght: 33,75 Inch
Country of manufacture: British
Date entered service: 1796
Manufacturer:

WOOLLEY & SARGANT
