EXTREMELY RARE, ORIGINAL, WW1 British Lord Howard De Walden’s Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers ‘Welsh Trench Sword’ With Correct ‘For the Honour of Wales’ Motto,‘JO’ Mark, Folding Hand Guard, Cord Bound Hilt & Original Webbing Covered Leather Scabbard - 16157
The famed & fearsome ‘Welsh Trench Sword’ was used by the Royal Welch Fusiliers during WW1. Privately provided by Lord Howard De Walden to his Battalion (De Walden was a military man who had served with the 10th Hussars in the Second Boer War and on his return to Britain he joined the 2nd County of London Yeomanry. An accomplished fencer, he was a member the British 1908 Olympic squad and this passion led to his interest in arms and armour, especially that of the Middle Ages and of his native Wales. As a result of this hobby, he commissioned Joubert to make him a bespoke reproduction 14th-century harness so he could better understand how armour worked. With the outbreak of the First World War, De Walden made repeated requests to find a more active posting and was subsequently sent to Gallipoli. On his return to England in a staff role, he used his family connections to once again be transferred to the front. Soon he was appointed second-in-command of the 9th Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers, a post he remained in until he was recalled to the War Office in December 1917). The weapon was based on the Welsh design of the ancient ‘Cledd’ knife / sword and was designed and patented by Felix Joubert in 1917 (see pages 16-18 of Flook's book British & Commonwealth Military Knives). These swords are extremely rare to find. Our original example is in excellent condition, complete and undamaged. The 18” leaf shaped flexible blade and hilt with pointed blade shaped tang end are forged from one piece of steel. It has the correct pommel plate holed for wrist cord and it has the correct back folding circular handguard. It measures 23 ½” overall length. The blade is undamaged and has just light staining consistent with age. It is inscribed with the correct regiment motto ‘Dros Urddas Cymru’ (For the Honour of Wales) and combined ‘JO’ mark which Flook describes as being found on these weapons. The hilt is correctly cord bound. The original cord is tight and intact. Its original correct scabbard is webbing bound leather with integral belt loop. The scabbard is clean and all material is intact. A similar scabbard is illustrated in Flooks book, plate 16. Flook states that leather scabbards without webbing have also been seen). The price for this extremely rare WW1 trench warfare weapon includes UK delivery. Sn 16157
