    Aah - much nicer examples! But I bet you didn't find them on a junk stall! Have I seen these on GMIC?

    Hi Harry, Yes, the Artillery Carbine was posted on GMIC. Both were originally found in Lesotho (Previously Basutoland) about 40 years ago. I have no idea how they got there. The cavalry carbine is marked to the Cape Mounted Rifles and the artillery carbine to the Cape Yeomanry. How come the mounted Yeomanry had an artillery carbine I'm uncertain. Probably issued through a shortage of cavalry carbines.
