Description:

Scarce engraving of the Nordenfelt gun, the weapon of the Rupertswood Battery of the Victorian Horse Artillery. Mounted on a travelling carriage it could be moved quickly and easily.  The Nordenfelt Gun was a multiple barrel machine gun designed by a Swedish engineer, Helge Palmcrantz who was financed by Thorsten Nordenfelt, a Swedish steel producer and banker, after whom the gun was named. Palmcrantz created a mechanism to load and fire a multiple barrelled gun by simply moving a single lever backwards and forwards.
