Hello, I'm trying to find out if the 16th Queens Lancers were involved in any actions post 1865 until they left India. All references I have and web searches have drawn blanks for me. I hope there is something interesting the regiment did during this time, not just soak in the sun! I'm sure this was not the case.
Recently picked up a 16th QL 1853p sword marked to the regiment (scabbard) and the only markings on the sword is on the blade spine, a broad arrow over I
Bottom photo compares a Mole 1853p (L) and the 16QL 1853p sword hilt.
I am interested in finding out who made the sword, the lack of marks do not help. Note the bars are spaced further apart, and the fullers stop 11" from the tip, not 9 1/2" regulation length. The guard is also thinner.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
