The sabre that Joe takes down and looks at is a Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre/1811 "Blucher". Originally adopted by the British Army, it was later copied by the Prussians and was still carried into battle as late as World War I. The plaque on the display refers to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871. The rank of F Heusmann, is Oberst, but the sabre does not look as though it is finished as an officers' version of the weapon- particularly not for a colonel. British officers' swords were privately purchased and while only subtly different in design, were often embellished with gilt, blued and decorated blades, and custom grips- which we unfortunately cannot see in this sequence.
