The Gordons


Chitral 1895


The Maxim Gun detachment of the Gordon Highlanders is seen here, and appears to consist of ten men and an officer. Photos were taken at this time, of other regiments and their Maxim guns, so it seems that these weapons were quite a novelty in the Chitral campaign. Two Indian wallahs with mules stand at the rear to transport the gun.
