Straight stirrup hilted sword
Straight stirrup hilted sword, which belonged to Admiral of the Fleet Sir Alexander Milne (1806-1896). The pattern of this sword was altered by the regulations of 1827 to one with an entirely different hilt and blade. On this account Lieutenant Milne could not have worn this sword in naval uniform except on some special occasion (he was promoted to Lieutenant in 1827 when the sword changed). Lieutenant Milne has noted on the card attached to the hilt that as Admiral of the Fleet, he was present at a review of Volunteers in 1881.
