Does anyone have any information about Sergeant Thomas R Silver he enlisted in 1834 and was in the Crimean War. I have his Sword presented for excellence and efficiency by Lieutenant E A Cook. X1th P.A.O. Hussars, Dublin 2nd September 1853. I believe E A Cook to part in the charge.

The medal roll has him present at the battle of Alma, but not for Inkerman or Balaklava; there is a note against his name - 'sick on board ship'.

Can you post photos of the sword? I'm curious if it's a 1821p officers cavalry sword.

Wonderful 1821p officers sword. The dated inscription is fantastic. More research can answer if his illness was short term or not.
Even if he was not in the charge it is quite a valuable sword, given a UK dealer is selling a 1853p troopers sword dated 1875 (post dates the charge by decades) marked to the 11th for 2750gbp. The 11th Hussars continues to have collectors wanting that piece of history.
Pics of a 1853 and 1821 hc troopers swords marked to the 4th Dragoon Guards.
