    Jerry, looks like we don’t know! Pretty sure the P.102 is some sort of rack marking as it’s on both sword and scabbard. Would suggest the B is for Battery, but were the British Artillery using it in that sense ( ie a Troop) in the early 1800’s? The small overlayed mark between the A and B is intriguing, can you confirm under a lens what it is? I take it no sign of a maker or viewing mark on the blade. Have seen these so called ‘Spanish Patterns’ made by Woolley and also Reddell.

    I have an 1821p cavalry sword marked 7th H s for 7th Hussars. The smaller "s" suffix may be the key to what the "A" represents.

    Hi....Under a magnifying glass it is in all certainty, a T stamped over an S..No sign of any maker either...an odd one for sure!
