This rare little beast, made by Paul Weyersberg of Solingen (marked at the forte), has hard rubber grips with white metal rivets and the initials 'R.F.V.'

militaria item US dragoon officer's sword, 1831 model
- American
This is one of the rarest of the post-1812 War cavalry swords. The Federal army was microscopic at this time, perhaps only 30,000 strong, the numbers only gearing up for the Mexican War of 1848. The design is a direct copy of the British light cavalry sabre of the same era.

militaria item Light Cavalry sabre, model 1811
- Prussian
This is essentially a British 1796 Light Cavalry sabre manufactured by the famous Birmingham cutler John Gill (marked 'I GILL' on the back of the forte), part of the export consignment which Prussia bought between 1807 and 1813, a total of 16,000 sabres. The Prussian Light Cavalry in the latter part of the Napoleonic Wars would have carried these.

militaria item KS98 issue bayonet with DOA markings
- German
This rare bayonet was issued to the German troops in German East Africa and is marked DOA on the cross guard. Only some 11,000 men of these troops at one point kept 50,000 British and Indian men at bay. Von Lettow Vorbeck surrendered six weeks after the armistice on the Western Front and, by his own account, could have gone on fighting for ever.
