GUN recovered from AUD wreck - image #2
Gun recovered from AUD wreck.
This gun was recovered by my friend John Bennett, (owner of Mother Hubbards Café in Kinsale), sometime in the 1960's and passed on to me in 2022. Unfortunately it was not treated and so much of the metal has corroded now. I believe it is one of a large batch of Russian MOSIN NAGANT M91 rifles/carbines that was originally captured by the Germans from Russia and then shipped via the AUD. (Will try and confirm as time allows.)
