George V / WW1 London Irish Rifles Officers Sword

Sales enquiries

The London Irish Rifles were a distinguished regiment made famous by their football team captain (Rifleman Frank Edwards) kicking the ball in no mans land as they charged the German line.


The 32 1/4 inch blade is good but the etching feint, some light rust / patina patches, firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard mostly good but aged with some scratches / rust spots inside the hilt. Grip mostly very good. The leather field scabbard is aged. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Not many of these around, to be sure! A great price, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference R55 (0528). Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0528-1.18 (1.920).
