    Cheers Dave

    There is definitely no thistle or royal cypher. I thought someone had done a little 'imaginative' restoration, as the grip wire is tight and not silver and I don't see the same wear on...

    Hi Guys

    I picked up a sword at Thomas Del Mars auction recently, it had a 1796 Infantry Officer hilt, with a Solingen broad sword blade. Chances are, someone from this forum could have sold it or at least...

    Mark, I think you are right, the 53rd wasn't a Rifle Regiment or Light Infantry until 1881, I had completely over looked that fact! As you say, that would make the original owner to be Lt Marshall of...

    I'm afraid that's it Robert, no regimental badge. I'm guessing it belonged to a Donald Campbell of the 89th. It's difficult to tell just by the Army lists, as they rarely provide initials. The 89th...
