The sword illustrated is not a mortuary sword, it is a British 1788 Pattern heavy cavalry sword. Whilst there may be some overall similarities between the two types of sword they are not the same, and their use did not overlap in time.

Thank you very much, I have incorporated your identification of the sword into the file descriptions, and removed them from the category "Mortuary swords" (which finds itself sadly empty, but that is better than talling falshoods). Thank you again! Rama (talk) 15:17, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
