Light Cavalry-type sword
Light cavalry-type sword, which is thought to have been worn by Captain John Cooke (1763-1805) at the Battle of Trafalgar, where he was killed aboard HMS 'Bellerophon'. The gilt stirrup guarded hilt is decorated with embossed langets. The sword has a plain rounded gilt pommel and back-piece. The white ivory grip is diamond knurled. The blade is very curved, flat backed with three deep fullers, two of which continue to within 102mm of the double-edged point. The undecorated blade is made from steel. The black leather scabbard is decorated with a diamond tooled pattern. The scabbard has two gilt lockets with rings and chape, with a stud on the obverse of top locket for a frog suspension. Inscribed on the reverse of the top locket in an oval are the words 'Tatham To His Majesty - No 37 Charing Cross, Near The Admiralty'.
