Boer War finds near Swartruggens
« on: July 10, 2019, 07:43 PM »
Hi all, just a few finds on a farm near Swartruggens.
The big shells are Martini Henri marked K II (Lead, Round Nose. Case of Drawn Brass) and the .303 is Marked RL C II (Round Nose Cupro Nickel Jacket) according to my book Small Arms of the Anglo Boer War.

Last is a 1/2 shrapnel ball.
