militaria item Cavalry officer's walking out sword, gilt-mounted
- British
This rare sword would have been carried as a dress item by a cavalry officer from the mid 1780s to the early 1790s. There is a portrait recorded by Romney, painted in 1780, of one Robert Shore Milnes of the Royal Horse Guards, wearing the dismounted service uniform and such a sword.

militaria item Brass-hilted sawback hanger
- British
This hanger, almost certainly of military or naval origin, is an exceptionally clean example with a 24" sawback blade and a staghorn grip. Typically they would have been used in the Seven Years War, as well as in the US War of Independence. It would have been carried in a brass-mounted leather scabbard, now sadly lacking.

militaria item Heavy Cavalry officer's sword, 1887 pattern
- British
This sword was sold by Wilkinson in 1907 to H W Carson of the Royal Army Medical Corps. This much-decorated officer died in 1918 in Palestine and the sword was subsequently refurbished and given a different set of initials: A.H.S.W. for Arnold Horace Santo Waters, who was a VC winner of the Royal Engineers in November 1918.

militaria item Light Cavalry officer's sword, 1788 pattern variant
- British
This iron-mounted sabre, dating from the early years of the Napoleonic Wars, would have been carried by a British officer in a cavalry or yeomanry unit. Singularly, it has a backstrap/pommel in the form of a lion's head, something I have never seen on this pattern in over 50 years of arms dealing. All I need is a good portrait to pin it down!

militaria item Royal Navy officer's sword, 1827 pattern
- British
This sword by Gieves (engraved on the forte of the blade) is a George V example, typical of RN officer's swords used in both wars, the later examples, as here, having a rather slim blade and lightweight grip, as against the earlier ones which were rather more substantial. Interestingly, German practice followed a similar path.
