Title 1829 pattern light cavalry trooper's sabre
Nationality British
Period c 1830
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Clean example with much factory polish extant to blade (36"). Scabbard has been carefully machine cleaned. Hilt has original leather binding with a few old inert worm holes. There are no ordnance marks/inspection stamps; however, this is an extremely scarce sword and hard to find in nice condition with scabbard.

This pattern is would have been carried by the bulk of the Light Brigade in their famous charge at Balaclava during the Crimean War, October 1854.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
