WW2 1st pattern FS Commando fighting knives were initially produced in 1940 with large 3" cross guards but the cross guard size on 1st pattern's was soon reduced to 2" due the larger cross guards snagging on clothing. Many collectors doubted the existence of these 1st type 1st pattern knives as examples were rarely if ever seen, however, Ron Flook in his book The Fairbairn Sykes Fighting Knife & Other Commando Knives describes and illustrates correspondence produced by Wilkinson Sword dated 1941 which contains a request from the War Office to produce knives with 2" cross guards rather than 3" (see page 68 of Flook's book plate 5.8.). This superb full size (12” overall) 1st pattern FS Commando dagger with 1st type 3" cross guard was produced in 1996 by Wilkinson Sword to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the ‘The Special Forces Club’.

VERY RARE, SUPERB, ORIGINAL, C1817 British Household Cavalry 'Life Guards' Silvered Metal Helmet With Bearskin Mounted Combe, Helmet Plate & Link Chin Strap With 1821 Pattern Life Guards Cuirass Breast & Back Armour Complete With Wood Display Stand. - 13743
The British Household Cavalry consists of The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals. They are the oldest and most senior Regiments in the British Army. This is a superb C1817 British Household Cavalry 'Life Guards' Helmet (an identical helmet is featured on the title page of the book ‘Military Headdress’ by Rankin). It has a silvered metal skull with gilt fittings, leather backed link chin strap & combe with bear skin crest (the fur of the bearskin is delicate and great car should be taken when dusting to prevent malting). Gilt leaves decorate the back and sides of the skull. Lion’s head bosses each side support the leather backed ornate plate link chin straps with buckle. It has a very ornate original ‘sun ray’ helmet plate with heraldic Royal arms and battle honours ‘Waterloo & Peninsula’. It has a leather sweatband which is clean & intact. This helmet is as found and uncleaned, professionally cleaned it would look even more spectacular. In the early 19th Century, the Lifeguards were equipped with chest and back armour known by the French term ‘ cuirass’ (cuirasse). 1821 Pattern Life Guards Cuirass ( Armour ) were issued to the Life Guards for the coronation of King George IV in 1821, this pattern of cuirass has remained unchanged for over 180 years and is worn by the Life Guards today. While 1821 was the date for the official introduction of the cuirass to the Life Guards there was a brief use of cuirasses during the Napoleonic Wars. In 1814 the 2nd Life Guards wore cuirasses when they were reviewed by the Prince Regent, with the King of Prussia and the Emperor of Russia in attendance. It has been suggested this was the same pattern but evidence is inconclusive. The helmet is accompanied by the original 1821 pattern armour with which it was found. Made of thick steel with padded leather lining the curved breast plate and back armour is linked by a bullion leather strap with buckle and ornate link plate shoulder straps which fit to lugs on the breast plate. The edges of the armour have the correct large brass studs. The armour is 19” tall (to the shoulder) and it fits approx 40” chest (over a jacket as it would have been worn). The armour is curved with vertical ridge to provide strength and has a flared waist. The armour has no damage or dents and just staining consistent with age. There are no visible manufacturer, date or Regiment marks on either the helmet or armour. This Lifeguards helmet and armour piece is accompanied by the wooden display stand on which it was found. Price for this impressive piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13743
