Notes

A label, removed 15/08/1997 and placed on inv. file, reads: 'From a cutlass bearing a disc No. 49'; ' possibly IX.239; and on reverse 'not in inventory'. In fact another figure-of-eight pattern cutlass now bears the number IX.239 and ffoulkes 'Inventory...' (p. 292) has under this number what is apparently the same or a similar pattern cutlass marked GR, though ffoulkes gives the makers name I. Gill which is not included in the IBE and has been deleted from the (Edged) Weapons dept copy of ffoulkes (PJL, 15/08/1997).
