This pattern of heavy cavalry sabre was introduced in about 1796. Some examples have this langets but this shows no sign of any having been fitted. The construction is stronger than normally found (reinforced guard, tanged and riverted grip) and is probably purely a heavy cavalry feature. Although replaced in 1830 (by WPN1414) this type lasted for a few years longer. It is probable that this type of sword was chosen, in the 1830s or 1840s, when more cutlass blades were required to have its blade shortened and remounted for serivce at sea.
