Straight bladed dirk
Straight-bladed dirk, which belonged to Midshipman John Shortland (active 1794). The hilt of the dirk consists of a gilt crossbar with inversed ends. There is an additional bar on the obverse of the crossbar, which stands out for nearly 25mm, and has five small balls in its centre. A small gilt foul anchor fills the space between the crossbar and the centre ball.
