Subject: 1812 Francis Caldwells sword
In the below link to the Windsor Public Library they show a picture of William and Francis Caldwells swords/sabers.Because I know very little about swords I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what thay are called and the difference between Williams and Francis'.
Were they British swords/sabers,sword knots,sashes etc supplied to the officers of the B.I.D the same as those supplied to the regular British Military?
Thanks for any help,
