Army sword identification

I think if that was what a sword handle was made out of now a days there would be an outrage
Shagreen is still used for the hand grips of swords to this day!
 
Which website do I send in the serial code?

From this site:

‘Privately purchased Wilkinson-made swords from 1854 onward carried serial numbers on the spine of the blade. Most of the records for these sales survive and are accessible through Richard Milner.
‘These records give the date of manufacture of each blade and sometimes include the buyer's name, which can aid in researching the officers who carried these swords. You can contact Richard Milner and find out how to order a record here: http://www.armsresearch.co.uk
