    this is the 2nd message, the pictur links will be send in 1 third message
    the 2nd sword is a Royal aertillery officers sword which is etched with the moto of the order of the garter, but there is a small difference, the moto usually says "HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE" but on my sword the writing is without the Y (see photo), would you happen to know why is that ?
    the 2nd sword is pictured over a red backround.

    again, any information you might have will be greatly appreciated.
    kind regards

    Hi Robert, how are you doing?
    my name is Shahar Waserman and I am from Israel, I have a few questions in regards to 2 Wilkinson items in my possesion, I will greatly appreciate any innformation you might provide.
    the 1st is an officer sword numbered 18327, which I understand was made in 1872, the sword is marked for the 19th Hussars regiment, the sword is etched with battles the regiment participated in, for example EGYPT 1882, my questions is how can the sword ordred in 1872 and have etchings for a battle that took place 10 years later, was the etching added later ?, was the the blade bought blank (without any etching) ?
    this item is pictured with a blue backround, the 2nd question will be posted in another message

    Hello Robert, this is the thread, I don't think the link works when sent in messages. Either way, the link in the post will work .

    Hello Robert, I have posted this link but i wanted to make sure you saw it. It is 8 pages written in the book: England's Workshops 1864. It has detailed information about swortd, bayonet and pistol making, a very interesting read.

    Hello Robert, I would greatly appreciate your opinion in regards to a sword that I previously received answers for on this forum. It is a Wilkinson Scots Guard sword with medium blade that originally belonged to Thomas leigh Hare. The ser# is 23368 for 1879. The blade etched June 1880 and has his initials. Hare was involved in several battles according to The Peerage. I would like your opinion as to whether he carried this sword in battle during this period. The scabbard has been lost to time, probably was rusted and dented and not visually great. The blade has several small knicks on the last third of the blade and the guard has lost the plating and has light pitting. Hare fought in the 1879 Zulu wars, Egyptian expedition of 1882, Suakim 1885, and Boer war in 1901. He also held offices in Norfolk and member of M.V.O.
    The latest battle honours etched on the blade are from the Crimean. Would he have owned more than one sword? Regards, Will.

    odd Mole marked sword is on ebay. I would like your opinion on it. I think it is close to a p1890 but it looks odd. The # is:150454521402
