Yeomanry sabres

Postby yulzari » 12 Feb 2017 22:44

I have acquired a Westley Richards Monkey Tail carbine which is very similar to the ones used by the Leicestershire and the Derbyshire Yeomanries in the 1870's and I look forward to it barking later this year.

I used to be in the Leicestershire & Derbyshire Prince Alberts Own Yeomanry many years ago and I thought that a corresponding reproduction sabre would be a nice match for it.

Can anyone advise me what sabres they would have been issued with in the 1870s?

1853p troopers sword. I don't think earlier patterns were sill in use at this time. The 1864p was limited and regular cavalry regiments would have gotten these first.
