    The inscription in the frontispiece (I LOVE that word) reads:

    All the best
    Peter Hart

    And there is a signed note on an Imperial War Museum 'With Compliments' slip which reads

    'As requested by Auld_Yin of ARRSE here is a copy of my latest book for auction or whatever'

    There are no specific pictures of rifles, although there are lots of pictures with rifles in them. There's a curious picture of a sailor smiling from the barrel of one of the Queen Elizabeth's fifteen inch guns though.
