This was an official issue - note the 'U' for Union (of SA) and the Broad Arrow of the Board

This is the sword to give scale to his Swagger Stick. Very often on heads of these sticks , there will be dents. Particularly on the South African pattern which has a head like a mushroom. In fact the

dents come from when the officer drops it in a corner or, on a table. The head is of two sections

of silver and dents easily.
