The pattern 1822 Light Cavalry sword was succeeded by a new pattern in the 1850s in which the piped back blade was replaced by a fullered blade. Royal Horse Artillery Officers changed to the 1912 Pattern Cavalry Officers sword and continue to carry it in Kings Troop. With the abandonment of the sword as a fighting weapon, the three-bar-hilted Royal Artillery sword has tended to become narrower and lighter in the blade, being now only 1 inch at the shoulder. In 1896, along with all other officer’s swords, the length of grip was made variable to suit the individual hand. With minor changes-and one exception- this sword has been carried by Royal Artillery officers ever since.
