I have been reviewing the "Saved" folders of my little SONY and would submit the following additional photos -
.303" Maxim Machine Gun


The descriptive card


And a separate appreciation of the role of the .303" Maxim MG during the South African War
(From the Textbook of Small Arms, 1929)


Display of trophies taken


Descriptive card of the rifle


Comment by IL: The rifle shown is not a standard Boer M93 Mauser - it is a sporting version of the Dutch M95 Mannlicher in calibre 6.5mm rimmed. The magazine was charged with an en-bloc clip.

Another display




About the flag


Medals shown


Regards to all
IL.
