During Cecil Rhodes attempt to drive a corridor through to the sea in 1891 his force captures seven Hotchkiss guns at Macequce, Mozambique, one of which was used at the Battle of Bembesi on 1 November 1893, and may have been the same one as in the Bulawayo laager in March 1896. I have been trying to find all I can on that gun but am unable to pin it down to exactly what it was, and am left thinking it was probably a 37mm calibre machine gun, mounted on a wheeled carriage, a multi-barrelled weapon on the same principle as the Gatling, and like the Gatling fired and re-loaded by a crank handle. Can anbody please confirm I have got it right, or if I have guessed wrong, then what sort of gun was it please. At one stage I thought it might have been the 1.65" Hotchkiss single barrel gun, but rejected that in favour of the multi-barrelled machine gun. Many thanks.
