Boer War 1901 Dated, 1899 Pattern, British Heavy Cavalry Troopers Sword By Wilkinson London To 2nd (Queen’s Bays) Dragoon Guards & Scabbard. Sn 13919. - 13919
The 2nd (Queen’s Bays) Dragoon Guards sailed on the Orotava on 18th November 1901, and arrived in South Africa in December. In Lord Kitchener's despatch of 8th February 1902 it was stated that a brigade was being formed under Colonel the Honourable R T Lawley, consisting of this Regiment and the 7th Hussars, to operate in the Winburg district. The brigade was for some time in the north of the Orange River Colony. They took part in General Elliot's great drive in the last half of February, which was the most productive of the very numerous operations of that nature. During this drive heavy losses were inflicted on the Boers. In March 1902 Lawley's brigade was moved to Springs in the Transvaal, and on 1st April had severe fighting. In his despatch of 8th April Lord Kitchener says that Colonel Lawley sent out Colonel Fanshawe with three squadrons Queen's Bays and 30 National Scouts to make a detour preparatory to co-operating with his own advance. At 3.15 am Fanshawe surrounded a farm, where several Boers were captured; he then went on and tried to surround a laager, but the enemy were on the alert and he "was received by a very heavy fire, and realising that he was in presence of superior numbers, ordered a gradual retirement upon Leeuwkop. Close fighting then went on for several hours. The Bays, who were skilfully handled, retired steadily by alternate squadrons, whilst the Boers followed, pressing the withdrawal with the greatest determination and persistence". Leeuwkop was found to be in the enemy's hands, and Fanshawe had to make for another ridge, "where he received the timely support of the 7th Hussars and Lieutenant Colonel Lawley's guns". The Boers then fell quickly back. "In this affair, although the Bays were capably handled and displayed steadiness and gallantry in face of superior numbers, their losses were, I regret to say, heavy. Two squadron-leaders and 10 non-commissioned officers and men were killed, and 5 officers and 59 men were wounded". During the short time the regiment was in the campaign 1 officer and five non-commissioned officers and men were mentioned in Lord Kitchener's despatches. This is an original, WW1 British 1899 Pattern Cavalry Troopers Sword to the 2nd (Queens Bays) Dragoon Guards & Scabbard (see page 101 of World Swords By Withers). The Sword has a 33 ½” single edged, slightly curved blade with fuller (40" overall). The blade is undamaged and clean.

American Navy Officers both during and after the American Revolutionary War carried swords of English & French style.

Their design was based on the French Model 1801 & 1833 cutlass except the American Model 1860 has Brass furniture as opposed to the French blackened iron furniture. The Model 1860 had a long service life and was only replaced in 1917 (see page 236 of World Swords by Withers). At the written request of the US Navy the Ames Company stamped a serial number on each and every cutlass. This serial number will always be found on the inside of the guard. This serial number consists of 2 digits and an M on the first line and 3 digits on the line below. The top number represents thousands and the bottom number represents hundreds. This is an excellent original American Civil War dated U.S.N marked example of the Model 1860 cutlass complete with original scabbard. It has the correct 26” long curved and fullered cutlass blade.

The cutlass is complete with its original brown leather scabbard which has brass rivets near to the throat and long brass chape. The leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact but the surface has areas of surface wear to be expected. The price for this rare American Civil war collector’s piece includes UK delivery.
