Sales enquiries

The Royal Garrison Artillery were a division of the British Royal Artillery that manned / used the heavy ordnance BL 9.2-inch howitzer (the big guns) on the battlefields. Our provisional research shows that G H Kemp made Lieutenant on the 23rd December, 1915.

The 33 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt generally very good. The leather grip is worn but sound; the twisted grip wire bindings are also good. The leather field service scabbard is good though aged and has some damage. The sword sheathes and draws well. There is no maker's / retailer's name etched to the ricasso.

A good honest sword designed for field use and with full provenance. A great buy; £500. Please quote item reference P69. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0247-1.18 (2.393).
