Remembered Today:

Swakopmund Sword

Recommended Posts

On behalf of the original owner's son, I am trying to trace a ceremonial sword in a metal scabbard with the inscription: ‘Presented to Major J.A.Methuen at the fall of Swakopmund 1915’. This item disappeared from the family's home, the Castle, in Umtali/Mutare, Zimbabwe during a period when the home was rented out in the late 1900s. If anyone with a particular interest in military swords can suggest where else to post this, I'd be grateful.
