ORIGINAL NAPOLEONIC WARS ERA British Georgian 1796 Pattern Officer’s Cavalry Sabre Marked ‘B77’ With Sash & Scabbard Named & Dated To Captain James Armitage Rhodes L.V. (Leeds Volunteer) Cavalry 1812 By Johnston Strand (London). Sn 14440 - 14440
James Armitage Rhodes was born on 9 February 1785, the son of Peter Rhodes of the Leeds Bank. Peter Rhodes decided his son would be raised as a gentleman's son so in 1802 he was sent to Queens' College Cambridge where he graduated BA in 1806, and MA in 1809. In 1812 he was ordained at Holy Trinity Church in Leeds on Boar Lane. However, the Reverend James Armitage Rhodes never sought a benefice where he could take spiritual charge of his parishioners, so he was known as a 'clerk with no cure of souls' and his participation in the church services was limited. In 1794 the Mayor of Leeds responding to the threat of invasion from France, supported the creation of militia units. Peter and James Armitage Rhodes together with other family members joined the Leeds Troop of Volunteer Cavalry. James Armitage attained the rank of Captain. The Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre was used primarily by British Light Dragoons and Hussars during the Napoleonic Wars. The blade is remembered today as one of the best of its time and has been described as the finest cutting sword ever manufactured in quantity. Officers of the famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments and the "flank" Companies of Line Regiments adopted these Swords (The Hit Peninsular War, Book & TV series Sharpe's Rifles featured this pattern of Sword). This is an original Napoleonic Wars era Officer’s 1796 Sabre with 1812 dated scabbard to James Armitage Rhodes. It has a single edged, fullered 32 1/2” Sabre blade. The blade is clean. The back of the blade is marked ‘B 77’. Its cross guard with rounded langets, knuckle guard, pommel and ribbed grip with wire binding are in very good condition. The metal fittings have much of their original gilt finish. The guard is mounted with an original red cloth Officer’s sash. The Sabre is complete with its original steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings. The scabbard has even patina and retains much of its original gilt finish. The back edge of the scabbard is marked ‘I.R. No1’. The scabbard is engraved ‘James Armitage Rhodes L.V. (Leeds Volunteer) Cavalry’ together with date ‘1812’. The reverse has maker’s roundel inscribed ‘Johnston No.8 Newcastle Street Strand (London)’. The price for this Napoleonic Wars dated sword to a named Militia Cavalry Officer worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 14440
