Hello,

what pattern sword was carried by RN officers? Where can I get one from? Not expensive something in the £100-£200 or around there. Same for sword knot and belt.

and where is the best place to get a reproduction officers cap from?

The sword was the same as that carried nowadays, albeit with a Kings Crown on the guard rather the Queens Crown. However, the use of swords was suspended during the war, along with all the uniforms (bar one) that swords were worn with.

BRITISH OFFICER: Hey man, what's shakin'. What's the story with this valley? This a good place to live, you think?
NATIVE: It is very fertile. My family has lived here for many generations.
BRITISH OFFICER: Awesome. I'll put my mansion right here sorta where you're standing. Hey, what's with the triangle things?
NATIVE: Those are the sacred pyramids where my ancestors are buried.
BRITISH OFFICER: Cool. There any kinda zombie curse or anything we should know about? I mean, I want to pillage'em, but I don't want to cause no problems.
NATIVE: Our people lie merely asleep in their graves, waiting to shriek forth and bring agonising death to any who would dare disturb their peace.
BRITISH OFFICER: Be serious.
NATIVE: ...in truth the curse is probably apocryphal.
BRITISH OFFICER: Wicked. Carter, bust out the Gatling guns! I want to be revered as a God by teatime.
