Hilt of sword
Straight stirrup hilted sword, said to have belonged to Vice-Admiral Sir Samuel Hood (1762-1814), although this thought to be dubious as Vice-Admiral Hood died in 1814 and this pattern sword was not introduced until 1825. The hilt consists of a straight stirrup guard with lion's-mask back-piece and polished ivory grip bound with three gilt wires. The langets are engraved with foul anchor.
