**SOLD**SOLD**16/2**VERY RARE**NAPOLEONIC PENINSULAR WARS ERA, British 1803 Pattern Light Infantry & Grenadiers Senior Flank Officer’s Sword With Blued & Gilt Etched Sabre Blade & Antique Ivory Hilt. ED 2544 - ED 2544
The development of the Pattern 1803 Flank Officer's sword goes back to the late 18th century, when light infantry units were formed in the British Army. The Grenadiers and light companies of a battalion were considered the elite of these infantry regiments, and could be detached and deployed separately as skirmishers. Grenadiers were the senior company of any infantry battalion and would typically lead an assault. When the battalion was deployed in line, the grenadier and light companies were deployed on the right and left flanks respectively, and both companies could be could be called upon to operate in looser formations and semi-independently. The added element of risk associated with detached skirmishing in looser formations meant that officers of light infantry needed a more robust fighting sword. By 1799, sufficient numbers of officers of these regiments and companies were using sabres rather than the Pattern 1796 Infantry Officer’s sword, enough for them to be given official leave to wear sabres instead. In addition to being a more practical weapon, these sabres could be more easily hitched up, as they were suspended on slings rather than the shoulder belt and frog of the Pattern 1796 Infantry Officer's sword. This ensured that the weapon did not inhibit movement when skirmishing over broken ground. This need for a more robust weapon was formally acknowledged by the King in 1803, when he approved 'a Pattern Sword for the Officers of Grenadiers and Light Infantry'. Despite this regulation there exists a great deal of variety in 1803 Pattern swords. Most have a slotted hilt, which joins the head of the back piece at a Lion's head pommel. The blade is commonly quite broad for an infantry sword, with a single fuller. In terms of general form, the sword is similar to the curved sabres of the light cavalry, and the blade is comparable to a slighter version of the 1796 Light Cavalry sword. This similarity was perhaps deliberate, as at this time light infantry across Europe were increasingly taking their military stylings from their light cavalry counterparts. Both light infantry and cavalry considered themselves an elite, and were keen to distinguish themselves from their comrades in the line through different uniform and equipment. The sword was approved for both flank officers of line infantry regiments as well as those few regiments in the British Army designated as light infantry. In addition to this, Regimental officers (Majors, Lieutenant-Colonels and Colonels) were permitted to carry the sword. This is an original very rare to find example of a British 1803 Pattern Flank Officer's sword (see page 168 of World Swords by Withers & page 151 of Swords Of The British Army by Robson. Withers comments that senior Officer’s examples had ivory hilts). Our example has the correct brass Lion’s head pommel guard with knuckle bow. The wire bound Senior Officer’s antique ivory hilt is secure and intact with just one small chip which can be seen in image 2. All wire binding is tight and intact. It has a 33” long fullered, single edged sabre blade with leather hilt washer. The blade is correctly gold etched on both sides for ½ of its length and traces of original blueing are present. The etchings are foliate panels, Georgian Crown GR royal cypher, heraldic devices and ‘Warranted’ banner. As is common our example is without scabbard. The price for this very rare sword includes UK delivery. ED 2544 (Ivory Content Comprises Less Than 5% Volume & Weight)
