This sword, possibly made by Hawkes and Co. of London, belonged to Lieutenant Frank Alexander De Pass of the 34th Prince Albert Victor's Own Poona Horse who won a posthumous Victoria Cross for his actions at Festubert in France during World War One (1914-1918). The sword had been presented to de Pass by Lieutenant-General Sir Percy Lake, Chief of the General Staff in India, following his appointment in 1913 as Lake's orderly officer.
