Pooley's Indian made swords

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I see that Windlass are now selling under their own name at WINDLASS SWORDS UK.

    A fraction of Pooley's price and the swords are even branded Pooleysword.

    Why pay more?

    Not a bad price but why pay that much? Wilkinson's swords come up on fleabay from time to time. I paid less than £200 for mine. If you're not in a hurry just watch and shoot.
  3. And the old ones are the best, better made and much better at slicing through, the only time they will be used in action, wedding cake!

    Here is one area that is so out of date and silly that it just no longer makes any sense, hold 6 in each regiment (for the wedding arch) and a pool at depot, for the once in a generation (standards or guidon) when you will really need more than six.
