I tried looking through older threads regarding swords, but have had no luck. So I am posting the question.
I am not looking for reviews on the quality of reproductions as that has been discussed. What I am looking for is info regrading what the Surgeon may have worn for formal/parade occasions? I know that as an officer, a sword was a required piece of the uniform and that they were either purchased or given by the family or unit as a token of gratitude. Would the surgeon have purchased a medical sword? I have seen a couple examples of surgeons wearing the 1850 Staff Officer's Sword, would this have been appropriate?
Thanks in advance for opinions.
