Grenadiers and Light Infantry sword
Grenadiers and light infantry sword. The hilt consists of a gilt knuckle-bow widening to form a solid badge of crown above foul anchor within a laurel wreath. It then joins a shell formed of three bars, of which the two side ones are each joined to the central one by short curved pieces of gilt metal (three either side). There is a lion's-head pommel, the mane extending one-third of the length of the faceted back-piece. The ivory grip has sixteen shallow horizontal grooves to imitate binding and improve grip, it swells outwards towards the guard. The gilt ferrule has a horizontal line top and bottom. A ring for a swordknot is attached to the top of the guard close to its junction with the pommel.
