Hilt of sword, Royal Marines
Royal Marines sword, which is thought to have belonged to General John Tatton Brown-Grieve (1795-1880). The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt openwork half-basket guard, with the Queen's cypher and a crown inserted in the outward bars. There is a hinged flap on the inside of the guard. The sword has a gilt pommel and back-piece. The fish-skin grip is bound with three gilt wires. The curved, flat-backed steel blade has one broad shallow groove running to within 203mm of the double-edged spear point.
