Officer's Sabretache 1812


The front and back of the sabretache are shown in these photos, revealing a strap across the back that the sword scabbard can be tucked into to stabilise both when cantering. The front of the sabretache is basically blue and silver with some coloured parts to the guelphic crown. The reverse cypher of George III takes middle place and a spray of laurel helps fill the space below.
