Reference item 1 on the list above.

last year I went to a living history demonstration by the Diehards at the Powder Mills in Waltham Abbey, Essex. Very good. Met most of the people who appear as British Soldiers in the You Tube video.

One of the chaps is a Martini Henry collector/expert who has his own web site. Which is attached for your enjoyment. http://www.martinihenry.com

Lester, a good friend and shooting colleague of mine - Graham Gilmore - is in the 'Diehards'. Not only do we shoot together at the weekends, but he presently has a the loan of a couple of my Minie bullet moulds!!

On that page you'll see the book by Mr George - all about carved-stock Boer rifles and carbines. My Boer carbine is on page 234 of that book.

Dear Tac, it's a small world.
If I remember correctly we had a very interesting discussion on the purpose of the cross grindings on Martini Henry bayonets. The purpose was to retain oil in the scabbard to prevent rusting etc.
He gave me some web sites to look at, which I later identified my own Martini Henry bayonet had been used/ owned by the 2nd Battalion of the Border Regiment, 55th Foot.
Please pass on my kind regards to him, but he spoke to hundreds of people on that day and probably won't remember myself and Mr Sambrook.
