militaria item Mannlicher-Berthier bayonet, pattern 1 (for Musketoon)
- French
This, essentially an artillery carbine bayonet, would have been carried through the last decade of the 19th century and, in a slightly modified form (wood grip and shortened guard), right through WW2. It also saw service with the Poles in this era. The calibre was 8mm bolt action with a 3-round magazine.

militaria item Gras bayonet
- French
This is the bayonet for the 1874 model single shot bolt action rifle which replaced the Chassepot of 1866, in turn rendered obsolete by the arrival of the Kropatsheck tube magazine rifle in 1877 (both the later rifles used an 11mm brass cartridge).

militaria item Royal Navy officer's sword with broadsword blade
- British
This is one of the rarer Victorian officer variant swords (the normal blade was a backsword with a slight curve and a single fuller), in this case mounted with a Highland broadsword blade. According to John McGrath's excellent publication, Swords for Officers of the Royal Navy, these swords were in vogue between 1870 and 1880.

militaria item Lion head cavalry officer sabre
- German
This was the walking out sabre for all German cavalry officers in the early 20th century. This sword was retailed by Ernst Pack of Solingen and is stamped with his logo at the forte, under the reverse langet. It has a Prussian officer's portepee and a rare original brown felt sword bag.

militaria item Light Cavalry officer's sword, 1796 pattern
- British
This Austrian-influenced sabre would have been carried by British horse artillery and Light Dragoons throughout the Peninsula War and, of course, at Waterloo. It is marked 'Osborns Warranted', a renowned Birmingham sword cutler. It has the post-1801 arms and pre-dates the amalgamation of Osborn & Gunby, which took place in 1807.

militaria item Heavy Cavalry officer's dress sword, 1796 pattern
- British
This is an Austrian pattern, which was adopted by the British army in 1796 as a dress sword for Heavy Cavalry general officers and militia units. It would have been used throughout the Peninsula War and at Waterloo and beyond until about 1820 or so.

militaria item Plug bayonet, ivory hilt with silver piquet work
- English
This is an officer's plug bayonet from the early years of George I. In extremis, the weapon could be mounted in the barrel of a musket, but would have been carried perhaps more as a symbol of rank. The ivory hilt has GR below a crown all inlaid in silver piquet work.

militaria item Silver bullion officer's sword knot
- German
Typical of the period, this sword knot is solid silver bullion throughout. It may be Prussian, but equally could be of some other German state. There is some damage to the bullion on one side and it is heavily tarnished throughout, but essentially it is a good quality item.

militaria item Officer's sword knot, 1896 model, Brunswick?
- German
This has major differences when compared to the standard Prussian officer's knot, principally the outstanding quality of the bullion work and the yellow centre to the base and the yellow fleck in the bullion collar at the top of the knot (hence the possible Brunswick attribution).

militaria item Prussian officer's sword knot
- German
This is the standard Prussian officer's sword knot, worn by all arms from 1896 to 1918. The black leather strap has three strands of silver bullion running through it. The large size suggests pre-war manufacture, as war-time examples are usually considerably smaller, often having only two strands of bullion on the strap.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
