Notes
  • The caption continues: '...this gun was called 'International', because it was an old BRITISH gun, was found in a CHINESE junk shop, mounted on an ITALIAN gun carriage, used RUSSIAN ammunition, and was fired by an AMERICAN gunner. The Chinese soldiers were so close at this point that they could throw bricks and stones over the wall. A number of our men were injured in this way. American Gunner Mitchell was here shot by a bullet which came through the loop-hole in front of his gun'. 242 x 193 mm. View showing a gunner standing beside 'Betsy', which rests on a stone platform and points out into the Mongol Market. The Mongol Market adjoined the south west portion of the British Legation and the north end of the Russian.
