Research Press Digest 2022
Key subjects covered in this volume are the British Volunteer Movement and musketry instruction. W.H. Blanch’s pamphlet of 1900 presents an informed and critical review of the Volunteer Movement. Viscount Bury reports on his musketry instruction course at the Hythe School of Musketry in 1860 and instructor Arthur Walker discusses 'Rifle Trajectories and Rifles.' Volunteers put the rifle skills to test at the NRA(UK) annual rifle meeting at Wimbledon. Through the latter part of the 19th century rifles evolved from single shot muzzle loaders to magazinerifles and musketry instruction was necessarily adapted to suit. $12.95 USD. View on Amazon
