Solid half-basket hilt of sword
Solid half-basket hilted sword, which belonged to Captain John Park Sanders (died 1848). The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt solid half-basket guard with raised bars and the badge of the Honourable East India Company. Captain John Park Sanders (died 1848) entered the Indian Navy as a Midshipman on the 27th May 1825 and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on the 18th February 1830. He became a Captain on the 13th September 1847 and was taken seriously ill in 1848 and had to relinquish his command. He died at sea off Malta on his way home. Much of his career was devoted to surveying.
