    Thumbs up 2243 Robert Montague Powell (RMC 1931)`s sword of honour

    Robert,

    I have never seen the sword rubbings, but you may find a photo of a Royal Military College of Canada sword of honour (1827 naval pattern) of interest.

    2243 Robert Montague Powell (RMC 1931)`s sword of honour is part of an online exhibit at the Canadian War Museum. Robert received this sword, which was manufactured by Wilkinson Sword Co. Ltd., from the Royal Military College of Canada. This “Sword of Honour” was awarded to him in 1931 as the graduating cadet with the highest standard in all four components of the College instruction: academics, athletics, military and bilingualism (English & French) training.

    The sword follows the 1827 naval pattern still used by British Commonwealth navies. Commissioned as a lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in 1936, Powell held a variety of postings during the Second World War, including on motor torpedo boats based in England. He commanded the corvette HMCS Belleville at the end of the war.

    I added a different view of the sword.
