The Life Guards are one of the Royal Household Cavalry regiments in the British Army - the most senior of all British regiments. Though their history dates to 1658 it was not until 1788 that royal household cavalry units were divided into four regiments - two of which were the 1st and 2nd Life Guards. These units have a long combat history and participated in Waterloo, the Boer War and WW1. In 1922 the two Life Guard regiments were amalgamated into a single unit.

This Victorian Era Officer’s Dress Sword of the 2nd Life Guards was a 1872 modified version of the 1834 pattern sword. It continues today as the official state dress sword of the Life Guards.

The blade of this Life Guard’s Officer Sword has a blade of unsharpened, tempered high carbon steel. The blade is richly embossed with the motifs of the British Household Cavalry. The guard is of steel with the brass ornamental cypher riveted and richly displayed on the guard. The backplate and pommel are of steel. The grip is of leather with inlaid steel wire. The scabbard is of steel with brass accents and brass hanging rings.
