31 ¾” broad fullered blade excellent with minor transverse scratches toward the tip. Plated hilt with P form guard, saddled back strap and wire wrapped fluted grip. Rounded langets, the left engraved with Kanonier Perron 3/61. Kanonier translates to “cannoneer” and one translation of perron is “train platform.” As this sword was preserved with the train battalion sword above it seems likely that it was assigned to an artillery unit protecting an important railroad station. Only such example we have encountered.
