Zulu.Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Gras Fusil 1874 Empty
PostSubject: Gras Fusil 1874   Gras Fusil 1874 EmptyMon Jun 17, 2019 5:11 pm

I have acquired a French Gras Fusil 1874 which is pretty much contemporary with the Martini Henry. The rifle is single metal cartridge of the same calibre as MH. Any thoughts on how they compared in service?
