A very good example of a WW1 Royal Army Medical Corp Officers sword with a very fine frost etched blade.

This sword has been reserved until the 30 September

82.5cm (32.5”) straight dumbbell shaped blade rounded on the back and edge with a deep central fuller and spear point. The heavily frost etched blade is decorated on one side with the crowned royal cypher for George V above a laurel wreath and foliate strapwork, and a brass proof disc, and on the other with the royal coat of arms above RAMC, extensive foliate strapwork, and the makers name.

Brass/nickel gothic style hilt with cartouche containing the Royal cypher for George V. Black fishskin grip with copper/brass wire. Brown leather sword knot.

Maker: W H Hall - Sheffield

Dated: 1914 - 1918

Polished brown leather field service scabbard.

The sword and scabbard are in very good condition for their age and service use. The blade has some minor staining towards the hilt, but is otherwise free of rust. The etchings are as new. The hilt is intact and firm on the tang. The fish skin grip is as new. The scabbard has a few small scuffs but is otherwise in very good condition, the stitching is intact.

With minor refurbishment this sword would be suitable for a current RAMC serving officer – subject to Regimental permission.
