Description
 
Sword by Sanderson bros & Newbould Ltd.
Scabbard marked Wilkinson.
Great selection of markings to both sword and scabbard, some known, some unknown!
Hard worn sword, some stable rust, some pitting, but, the sword and scabbard are totally sound and as functional now as was then!
Scabbard is dent free.
Dermatine grip is perfect.
Unit marked to Royal Army Service Corps. First date on the sword is 1916. The Army Service Corps was awarded the Royal prefix in 1918 for service during WW1. The sword had a decent service life. Last inspection date on sword is 1924.
New leather washer (made from ancient leather. Looks original!)
35in blade.
A good investment opportunity given that in 1908 the sword was manufactured for £1 2s 8.5d.
