Curved bladed dirk
Curved bladed dirk, the dirk consists of a gilt hilt and straight quillons with fancy ends. The dirk is of a fancy pattern type, which was carried by 1st Class Volunteers from 1820 for about fifteen years. There seems to have been no regulation pattern or if so, it was not closely adhered to. The first mention of dirks for 1st Class Volunteers occurs in the 'Admiralty Dress Regulations of 1827' but no description or details are given.
