Please find linked the Infantry Sword Exercise of 1845. This was the core sabre manual for British officers for 50 years, from 1845 to 1895. It is the manual that Burton was so critical of in his 1876 treatise. For anybody studying British military sabre it is a valuable source and sets the context for later manuals from Burton, Hutton and others. This is a scan of my original copy of the manual - this manual has until now only been available to purchase and this is the first time it has been provided online for free. I have added to it some further pages which may be of interest. I hope you enjoy it.

I attempted to download this for my collection, but the download repeatedly failed. It could be a problem at my end, has anyone else experienced any difficulty?
