|Outfitted for service in the field this late-Victorian artilleryman is armed with Martini pattern artillery carbine. The presence of middle barrel band
on the carbine would seem to make it a Martini-Henry IC1 Artillery Carbine. The later Martini-Metford and Martini-Enfield carbines lacked a
middle barrel band. His secondary armament consists of a artillery sword bayonet which is almost as long as the carbine itself. This bayonet was
probably a saw-backed P1879 Mk1 Artillery Bayonet that was standard issue with his model carbine.
