A Very Fine Zulu War Officers Sword of Lt. Col Frederick Power
of the Northamptonshire Regt, formerly the Rutlandshire Regt. of the 1879 Zulu War, Battle of Ulundi fame. A stunning sword in lovely condition with a superb blade has all it's original deluxe frost and bright finish and Col Powers monogram etched within the pattern. Typical wire bound sharkskin grip and pierced VR cypher gothic hilt of the 1845 pattern infantry officer's sword. Used from the Zulu War through the early Boer War, and the later Boer Warin 1900-1902. Colonel power purchased this sword early in his military career as a Lt. around 1871, used it in service during the Zulu War period, and thus used it continually thereafter [post 1881] as Captain, Major and then [in the newly merged regiment] he eventually became Colonel of the regiment. The officers and men of the earlier named regiment [The Rutlandshire] served in the Zulu War in it's final overseas posting as an independent unit to South Africa in 1879 and later in the Transvaal War (1880-81) against the Boers. !
During the latter conflict it served at Laing’s Nek on 28 January 1881, where it was the last British regiment ever to carry its Colours into action. Only four months later, in July 1881, the regiment merged with the 48th Regiment of Foot to form The Northamptonshire Regiment. Lt. Col. Frederick Edward Power died 3 September 1915, New Steyne, in Brighton

Available from the Lanes armoury. These are good reliable dealers. I would buy this myself , but have been busy in the auctions recently :-( and after I smuggled in a basket hilted claymore I think mrs D would not be pleased to see another sword appear.

Without wanting to cast doubt, I personally would like to have seen a little more by way of provenance than just initials. I don't know, but it seems quite remarkable that it should have survived in that condition through three active campaigns. A very nice sword though.

agreed - worth checking - they usually have a lot of provenance with their named miltaria. Obviously would be better with a Wilkonson sword - not sure if this manufacturers records are still available.

Hi All

I am unable to find a Frederick Power listed in the 58th during the Zulu War.

There is a William le Poer Power listed but did not cross into Zululand. He Lieutenant W le P Power remained on detachment at Durban from the date of departure of the regiment from that town in April till the conclusion of the war.

He also retired in 1887 as a Captain.

Any further information welcome.

Hi All

Frederick Edward Power was a Lieutenant in the 48th (Northampton) Regiment during the Zulu War.

So the sword did not see service in Zululand but only a connection by amalgamation with the 58th (Rutlandshire) Regiment.
