Mine was taken from its owner on May 10th 1901 after the Korannafontein skirmish/débacle was over.This message has been edited. Last edited by: tacfoley,
Indeed. Martial Mausers are a history book unto themselves and the volumes are endless. Thank you for sharing.
They are going to need them back.

I've just had a post on gunboards.com from 'Slim kerel' who has #6334 - AND he, too, lives in UK. I've asked him if he would like a photo-op meet-up.
Pretty cool, eh?
That was a very informative video; thanks.
