When you think of the Anglo-Zulu war the weapon that comes to mind is the Martini-Henry rifle. It is the weapon carried by the British infantryman throughout the war and it did valuable service – it’s large-caliber bullets causing immense casualties against the Zulu Impis.

Well, in Episode 7 of the RedcoatHistory Podcast I was lucky enough to interview Rob from the Britishmuzzleloaders YouTube page. He is a Canadian with an Encyclopaedic knowledge of British weapon systems of the 19th century.

If that tickled your fancy – here is one of Rob’s videos demonstrating the weapon in all of its glory.

If you aren’t already following Rob on YouTube then take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror before a quick slap and then hitting that “subscribe” button. He is the man.
