Lloyds Patriotic Fund £100 Trafalgar pattern presentation sword, the sword belonged to Captain J.R. Lapenotiere (1770-1834). The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt guard and pommel; the back-piece is made in the form of a lion's skin. The quillon is shaped like a Roman fascis, and the guard meets this at right angles and is made in the form of a Hercules club. A snake is entwined around the club, and it is attached to a loop in the lion's mouth. The triangular langets form a rectangular plaque at the base of the grip, which is decorated with a group in relief depicting a cannon, anchor and trident, decorated on the grip beneath this group is a floral pendant.
