Land-Service 24-pounder rocket cart, circa 1879.

Postby Isandlwana » 05 May 2016 13:10

Following a query from an enthusiast, I am trying to establish whether any plans exist for a rocket cart used for carrying the 24-pounder rocket tube used in the Zulu and 1st Boer Wars by the Royal Navy landing brigades.

Can anyone assist please?

Thanks in anticipation,

John Y.

Yes there are quite good sectional scaled drawings in C.E. Franklin's "British Rockets".
