SOLD SOLD (16/04) OLDEST BRITISH ARMY REGIMENT, C1870 British Honourable Artillery (HAC) Officer’s Sword With Etched Blade & Scabbard. Sn 14667:9 - 14667:9
Established in 1537 the HAC is the oldest Regiment in the British army. It was primarily a citizen militia and raised in times of national emergency including the Armada, English Civil war and Napoleonic wars. Until the Victorian era, Officers would have followed regular infantry sword patterns. As this was a volunteer army, they would have to pay for all service equipment including their own swords. This sword highlights the strong influence of French sword design in that era, particularly with regard to the knuckle bow and angled or canted pommel (see page 175 of World Swords by Withers).This is a very good example of the HAC Officer’s Sword. Our example has a 79 cm long, rapier type steel blade (93 cm overall). The blade has light staining consistent with age. Both sides have foliate engraved panels and stylised ‘HAC’ monograms. There are no visible manufacturer marks on the sword. It has brass guard with canted pommel and pierced upturned clamshell featuring the embossed ignited grenade artillery emblem. The fish skin covered hilt has its original copper wire binding which is tight and intact. The sword is complete with its original steel scabbard.
