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

I've just come back from a few days away visiting Stonehenge and Salisbury and it seems I just can't get away from the AZW. The B&B we stayed in in South Newton had a Martini-Henry carbine up on the wall. The couple who ran the B&B were in their 80s and he told me he'd bought it as a young man when he was at RD! He knew that it didn't come from and was used at RD but he simply bought it there. I've come across very few M-H carbines so it was quite something to be able to handle one. It was broken with the lever permanently jammed down but surprisingly light and easy to handle.

I wonder if it had a more intimate connection to the AZW apart from being of a type used at a the time.

Did it have a date stamp on it or anything?

Cheers

None that I could see - it was pretty grubby and worn - it looked like it had been 'in the wars', so to speak!
