Katana (sword) by unknown zoom

Katana (sword)

Japanese katana. This sword was surrendered at Singapore in 1945, presumably, from its mounts, by an army officer. It was given to the boys of HMS Ganges by Captain Eric W. Bush, DSO, DSC, RN, on Victory Day, 1946. Mr B.W. Robison of the Victoria and Albert Museum identified the sword as originating in Sagami Province and gave it its provisional date. He stated that the hollyhock decoration meant that probably an ancestor of the owner was a servant to the Tokugawa Shogunate, one of whose badges that flower was.
