20 September 1854

Slaget ved Alma
Slaget ved Alma var et slag under Krimkrigen som sto mellom Russland på den ene siden og Frankrike og Storbritannia på den andre. De engelsk-franske styrkene gikk i land på Krim 13. september 1854. Seks dager senere marsjerte de allierte inn i landet til de kom til elven Alma, der russerne under ledelse av fyrst Mensjikov ventet på dem på et fjellplatå der de hadde bygd opp gode stillinger. Gortsjakov kommanderte russernes høyre fløy, Kirjakov den venstre.

Etter vanskeligheter med å koordinere det allierte angrepet mellom de øverste befalshaverne Marsjall Arnaud og Lord Raglan klarte Pierre Bosquets franske divisjon å nå platået. Britene skulle foreta et lignende angrep på den høyre fløyen, men det var dårlig koordinert, og man ungikk en katastrofe bare takket være de britiske soldatenes utholdenhet. I mellomtiden klarte franskmennene å få en divisjon til opp på platået, og med det avgjøre slaget.

    A special year for Norway, 2014 both marks the bicentenary of the Norwegian constitution and – perhaps slightly less celebrated – the beginning of the union with Sweden. This article presents the military black powder small-arms that were used in the 91 year long Norwegian-Swedish union 1814–1905.

For sale: a Beaumont Vitali rifle

For sale: A Dutch Beaumont rifle made by P. Stevens in Maastricht The Netherlands. It was made in 1874 as a single shot rifle and transformed to a magazine rifle in 1890 for the Dutch army. It doesn't have the small cracks in the wood around the magazine (a known weak spot). All Beaumont Vitali's lack the cleaning rod unfortunately. It has good rifling and good working mechanism. The magazine and rear sight still have the "dirty" type blueing.

I have lots of pictures, so ask for more.

Sales price is 530 euros incl. shipping to Norway with DPD.
