Over on our sister forum we have recently published two short articles regarding the Brown Bess Musket and the Baker Rifle. I say short - around 700 to 800 words - but with enough detail to give someone the basic knowledge of the weapons in question. I was wondering if anyone fancies doing something similar on this forum? We have quite a few knowledgeable members on all matters to do with firearms used during the Victorian period so maybe someone is a bit of a budding author? In particular it would be great to provide novice enthusiasts with information on the main weapons used by the British such as the Enfield Rifle or the Martini-Henry etc. Maybe you want to write an article on something completely different such as uniforms or equipment.
Any help is warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated!
