George V (1927) British Rifle Officer's Wilkinson Sword

Sales enquiries

Serial number 60885 for 1927, with initials "F. W. M. L." to blade. The Wilkinson ledger has an entry that appears to be for a Cumming of the KRR (Kings Royal Rifles), probably Lt. M. E. D. Cumming. Trouble is, we have no idea who F W M L could therefore be.





The 32 1/3 inch blade is overall good, but with patina / inert rust small patches, firm in the hilt. The hilt with wear / slight damage / chips to ends / inert rust spots. The fishskin grip is aged / faded but good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather scabbard with age but overall good. Remains of sword knot. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nice sword with tons of research potential. Bargain, just £450. Please quote item reference S33-AD78. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0592-120x17x17 (1.762).
