Hi (1st post here) I purchased a sword a few years ago, looks like a saber. It is marked "IEC/333" on one side and "India" on the other. I believe a unit called IEC/333 fought at Singapore for the Brits - anyone know what IEC was? I think it was Indian troops fighting under Brit command. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, Here is one link that has a few swords to compare or start. Post as much information as you can, as Spartonroller mentioned.

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
