Light Cavalry-type sword
The hilt consists of a gilt stirrup with langets, that on the obverse side has a foul anchor engraved at an angle of 45 degrees to the blade. There is a plain gilt pommel and back-piece and a knurled ivory grip. The blade appears very curved for a naval sword. This sword was presented to the Royal United Service Institution by Admiral Sir George Robert Lambert as the sword worn by Nelson at St Vincent and Teneriffe. It is extremely doubtful that the sword belonged to Nelson.
