Repost of "A Search for a 7th Hussars Special Pattern Sword"

Sorry about the confusion. I'm reposting and this time the Link will hopefully work.

"Having added two unusual special pattern swords to my collection (Imbert-Terry, 7th Hussars and Harrison, 11th Hussars) both of which use an early cast off or pistol grip and straight thrusting blade, I was encouraged to pursue a spot of research into the wider use of this revolutionary design. These swords proved to be a little more common than I expected and I felt the information collected might be of general interest, partly because it involves earlier posts on other forums into the 7th Hussars special pattern known to have been carried by Field Marshall Douglas Haig. To this end the link to the relevant document is attached. I would be grateful to receive comments and criticisms (favourable or otherwise). Further information on any of the swords referred to, and especially Haig's, would be very welcome.
