I see some of the lots are given the provenance of 'from the museum of the Natal Mounted Police' - I have not heard of this place before, can anyone shed any light? There are no accession numbers or further details given. It must be, or have been, a fascinating collection. Dave.

As a follower of guns and other antiques, another good place to try looking for guns of the period would be the Royal Armory in Kathmandu, Nepal. They recently opened up it up to reveal Victorian era guns in excellent condition along with bayonets and other things.

Through a tortuous route I managed to obtain a limited quantity of accessories from the Nepal cache. I have a few original black MH slings, Mk2 & Mk4 jags & sight protectors, brass Oil bottles, MH tools and some inert early MH rolled cartridges. Anyone who is interested do email me for prices.
