Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

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?
