28 September 1916 – Ted to Gertrude

Dear Mother

Just a scribble to ask you to send my sword, as we shall want them at Delhi. It’s in a brown scabbard, & has a black sword knot on the hilt. It has a rifle pattern hilt, i.e with a bugle device in it, something (only something!) as per picture. It is made by Hawkes, you’ll see his name on the blade. I think it must be up in your room somewhere, as I know I left it at home when I came on leave from France one time.

You’d better insure it perhaps, & take the number on the blade in case it’s lost. P’raps Cox would send it out for you.

Lots of love
