Robert Montague Powell received this sword from the Royal Military College of Canada.

This "Sword of Honour", awarded to him as the graduating cadet with the highest standard in all four components of the College's program, follows the 1827 naval pattern still used by British Commonwealth navies. Commissioned as a lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in 1936, Powell held a variety of postings during the Second World War, including on motor torpedo boats based in England. He commanded the corvette HMCS Belleville at the end of the war.
