Hi All,

 

Am new to this site and to the collection of such items so please forgive my ignorance regarding terms.

 

I am trying to work out what the markings on the tang mean. It looks to have an ordnance marking at the top and a company logo at the bottom. Please see attached imaged

 

Thanks for all your help.

Hi.

Thanks for your help. I noticed someone else in the past posted a similar sword with what was termed a "hot stamp". I unfortunately do not have the book you refer to.

Wow. Thats fantastic. This is indeed what is stamped into it.? Want to say thanks for this help. Much appreciated.

Do you know anything more about the date of the sword and its creator?

Cheers again.
