TWO GUNS (next to the model Skudeneshavn 1918)

gfx The two guns have got the percussion lock ignition system. The system is based on the detonation of an explosive when struck sharply. It was invented in 1805, and became used in Norway from ca. 1820.

The uniform dates from 1914. It has belonged to a second lieutenant in the infantry. The belt and hat comes from a military Academy uniform.
