Machine gun. The Gatling gun consists of ten barrels which revolve round a central axis. The centre fire cartridges are fed into the gun from a magazine mounted on top which holds 240 rounds. The barrels are rotated manually by a hand crank at the rear of the gun - turning the crank forward rotates the entire barrel and lock unit. Each barrel is fired as it reaches the lower right hand position. The calibre is 0.65in. The gun is mounted on a naval cone mounting. The Royal Navy adopted the Gatling gun in 1871 and it was used from the 1870s for coast defence work, by the Naval Brigades and mounted in the tops of ships. The Gatling was manufactured under license by W Armstrong & Co. It was used during the Zulu War of 1879 and the Egypt Campaigns of 1882-1889.

90th

Did I see that you have a medal to a sailor of HMS Shah, with a 1879 bar?
Could you please let me know the name you have on the medal?
Have you done any research on this person?

Sorry for al of the questions.

Hi 90th

I have had a quick look for John Parkhouse on my database, I do not have any more information on him, I will put this guy on my list to find. I will update you if I find anything.

This is all very interesting, 90th can I ask how you come by the Medal. And is there any chance you could paste a photo of the Medal into the forum or drop it into the Photo storage for this forum.

90th That’s the problem with Medals and coins alike, its hard to capture the find detail. Anyway do your best look forward to seeing it.
I did have a look for John Parkhouse but have had no joy, I will continue looking. But rest you can assure you have the beat man on the job 1879Graves.
