Does anyone know the current regulations with regards to the above? Probably should have paid more attention on my WOSC during sword drill! I know we have a different sword (black handle etc) but when may one be carried? Off to a matelot wedding and don't want to be shown up by all the grunters who will be carrying theirs if I can too! Can just about remember the 'flicky, catchy, swingy when marching off!
