    If you read "The Washing of the Spears", by Desmond Morris, there are a few references to the mighty Martini Henry.

    In the days of "proper" warfare, when a rifle was just a nifty, high-maintenance extension for a bayonet, (pretty much any time before 1940), and actual ammunition was a noisy inconvenience, the provision of adequate heat-shielding on the fore-ends was blithely ignored.

    Troops in "interesting" postings were known to wrap green-hide around the fore-ends and barrels of their Martinis to ward off burns when things got "up close and personal" and the gentlemanly art of bayonet fighting came into play, or even to make them tolerable to hold after about ten round rapid.

    But why take a photo of a gun in the bathroom??

    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA

    Because it is close to the receptacle from which it was extracted and or will be utilized for disposal?

    Maybe he has a problem with critters coming up through the drains. Those gaters can get nasty.

    Isn't it obvious Gil, it's Martini "M4" for dealing with spiders in the bath....
