Established 1748; dormant since 1975.

The Order of the Sword was originally presented for bravery in the field and at sea, and later also as a reward for long and distinguished service in the armed forces. In addition to the five degrees there was a sword emblem for presentation to warrnat officers and a sword medal for NCOs. There were several decorations for distinguished wartime service.
