Photograph of a flintlock pistol held by Thomas Head Raddall over the logbook of the Spanish ship El Hercules

Item, a photograph, has a stamp marking it copyright to the National Film Board on the reverse side. The El Hercules was captured in the Caribbean by a Liverpool privateer around 1799. The flintlock pistol was found behind the wainscot in the house of Dr. Farish. Farish arrived in Liverpool around 1840, the same time when many of the privateermen from the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812 were still living. Dr. Farish's house was later occupied by Dr. John Wickwire between the 1930's to the 1970's. A duplicate copy of the photograph can be found in MS-2-202, Box 54, Folder 10.

Photograph of Arthur White holding a rifle and dressed in period uniform as a private for the Nova Scotia militia in 1865

Item is a photograph of Arthur White dressed in period uniform, though the gold braid on his shoulder straps should be plain red cloth in order to correctly portray a private ranking. He is holding an Enfield musket that has been converted by Snider's patent, as used by the character, "Kirby Stevens," in Raddall's story.

Photograph of Arthur White standing in profile, dressed in period uniform, and holding a rifle and bayonet

The rifle is an authentic musket with an attached bayonet that was used by the Nova Scotia militia between 1865-67.
