WW2 British Infantry Officers Sword, For
In good to very good condition, a WW2 British Infantry Officers
Marked "60 under broad arrow" (a British inspection mark)
and "B.H.G1935", which maybe the owner's initials and
the date. This is a George 6th (WW2 era) sword.
The 31 7/8 inch blade is in very good condition, no maker's / retailer's
name, so most likely a war time sword. Blade firm in the hilt. The
hilt in very good condition, as is the grip (a couple of lesser
grip wire strands very slightly astray). The scabbard generally
good but with quite a bit of wear to the chape / drag. The sword
sheathes and draws well. The black sword knot says this sword was
for a rifles officer.
Nice example, low price; £400. Please quote item reference
