Supplied by Hobson & Sons, London, this sword is etched with the initials 'J D S' above '1st Cambridgeshire Regiment'.

John Douglas Smalley was appointed a 2nd Lieutenant in the 1st Bn Cambridgeshire Regiment on the 24th February 1913. He embarked with this regiment for France, arriving on the 15th February 1915. He was killed in action on the 15th March 1915, during the Action of St-Eloi. He was 21 years old.

Last revised in 1897, The Infantry Officer's sword has a straight blade finely etched with the regimental crest. The nickel plated steel guard is pierced and etched with a scroll pattern that incorporates the royal cypher of the sovereign.

The sword is in good condition. The blade has some areas of pitting. It has not been polished and the etching on the blade is very good. The blade has been roughly sharpened from the end of the etching to the tip. The guard has areas where the nickel finish has worn but is in very good condition.

The scabbard is also in very good condition, although the leather tab for the sword frog has broken. The stirrup has an original repair.

Includes copies of some official records.
