    Long Tom, Turkish Mauser with bayonet.

    Gidday gents,

    I've been asked by a Colonel at work (not Sanders) to help find a few items for an upcoming display to some international officers here in Trentham over the Anzac period.

    The items we are after are an original condition Long Tom

    And an original condition Turkish Mauser and bayonet.

    The display will be in Trentham on the 18th of April so late notice but if any good bugger around here would be willing to help us out that would be much appreciated and we can find a way to compensate you for loaning the weapons (1-2 days)

    Static display only so will not be fired.

    Let me know if you can assist.

    Regards,

    Dan.

    I would have thought you would be able to get a loan from the army museum at waioru?

    Yeah its possible but they try to avoid it thought I'd try here before possibly signing my life away to get a pristine collectors piece.

    The correct ANZAC rifle for Gallipoli is the SMLE. Much easier to source.
    (The 'long tom' was earlier - Boer War.)
