Victorian, 1866 Dated Huddersfield Rifles British Pattern 1827 Rifle Brigade Officer's Presentation Sword With Etched Blade To Major Greenwood (Former Captain IV Company). Sn 17681 - 17681
Originally raised as the King’s Royal Rifle Corps in 1755, the Rifle Brigade was officially formed in 1800. The Regiment was always renowned for its individuality both in uniform & tactics and its no wonder that they eventually gained their own distinctive pattern of sword. The 1827 pattern is defined by an all steel hilt coupled with the usual Royal Cypher with strung bugle in the hilt cartouche. Most Victorian era swords are from Volunteer / Militia Units and the blades marked accordingly (see page 174 of World Swords by Withers). The Huddersfield Rifles was a unit of Britain's Volunteer Force first raised in 1859. It later became a battalion of the Duke of Wellington's Regiment in the Territorial Army, serving as infantry on the Western Front in World War I and as an air defence unit during and after World War II. This is an original 1827 Pattern Officer’s presentation sword & Scabbard. The sword has an undamaged 32 ½” blade (38 ½” overall) with partial fuller. The blade is etched on both sides including 'Crown' (Victoria), the badge of the Rifle Brigade and ‘VR’Royal Cypher (Victoria Regina) together with foliate panels.
