1821 Pattern Artillery Officer's Sword?

Recommended Posts

mtaylor

I have a brass hilted 1821 pattern sword that I thought was an artillery officer's. It has an etched blade with the cypher of George V  BUT there are no artillery emblems. It has no maker's mark but the back edge has the serial 3333 and a faint 'British Make' mark. There is a brown leather scabbard. Did other corps use this pattern?  Any suggestions most welcome.

I believe the Army Service Corps,  Army Ordnance Corps, Royal Engineers and the King's Own Poisoners use(d) the same pattern.
