Perth Digger Posted 19 May , 2016 Share Posted 19 May , 2016 In a thread a couple of years ago there is an account of Lt GO Birch, 2nd Welsh regiment, being killed while using his sword in combat on the Aisle on 14 September 1914. Is this the last example of a BEF infantry officer actually using a sword in a fight? Many officers still carried their swords thereafter, but this is the last account I can find of one actually using it to kill or maim.
