1885 Pattern Cavalry Trooper's Sword
Carried by both the 9th Lancers and the Denbighshire Yeomanry (Wales).  It was made by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum and Company of Germany who manufactured large quantities of swords for the British Army during the latter half of the 19th Century due mainly to the fact that British sword makers could not meet demand.  This was an unusual pattern of British cavalry sword as it featured a pierced Maltese Cross in the hilt.  Grips are made from chequered leather.  This sword has extensive issue and date stamps to both the blade fortes and top of the hilt.  These regimental markings are repeated on the scabbard throat.
