The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt solid half-basket guard with raised bars, and a crown and anchor badge. There is a hinged flap on the inside of the guard. The pommel is plain with a prominent tang button and a ribbed back-piece. The black fish-skin grip is bound with three gilt wires. Gunner George Ellis (active 1823-1885) was promoted to the rank of Gunner on the 24th December 1874. He died on the 2nd May 1885, aged 62 at Lewes, West Sussex.
