1 SERJEANT T. WELLS, 1st BATTALION OXFORDSHIRE & BUCKINGHAMSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY 1934 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT INSTRUCTION MANUAL IN THE ART OF FENCING USING THE FOIL, SABRE AND EPEE
Borden, Hants, Hampshire, England 1934 Original Wraps Good Manuscript 
On offer is a handwritten notebook-style instruction manual, as titled on the cover "Fencing Lessons Foil - Sabre - Epee". The inside front cover has a pastedown fully identifying the writer: "Serjeant T. Wells of the 1st BATTALION OXFORDSHIRE & BUCKINGHAMSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY. 19th Sept. to 13th Dec. 1934. Instructors Gartzen and Harkinson". An Index of the 67 page book shows that besides the lessons in the three sword types there are chapters on the Army Fencing Union, Pitches and Arenas and Bayonet Team Competitions. We are led to believe that this book is also a manual for the Instructor trainee as most pages have three columns headed: Pupil, Master, Remarks. The remarks appear to be helpful hints for the Instructor in dealing with the pupil. There are a number of hand drawn illustrations, including charts, tables, graphs and such plus there are quite a few little. 1.5" x 1", photographs which were cut from elsewhere and glued in as part of the lesson. In addition to the identification on the cover and inside front cover the back cover has Sjt. Wells handwritten address being we believe, Bordon, Hants [Hampshire]. Boards are cracked in the hinges and the netting shows but otherwise in very good shape. Provenance: From the library of a famed Hungarian fencing master, instructor, Olympian and coach. Superb fencing collectible.
