Wilkinson Patent Hilt to Gurkha Rifles officer

I have just finished putting together a little article about a fallen soldier of WW1, inspired by Armistice Day today and this wonderful sword that recently came into my possession:

Matt that is a great find. Difficult to find an 1827p Rifle officers sword that stands out from the many others but this is one of those that do.
The swords history truly adds to its already special characteristics.
