I'm trying to locate some photos of the UVF, Irish Volunteers, etc. from the pre-WW1 period and the Easter Rising. In particular I need photos of Micks armed with M.71 Mausers, Martini carbines, Lee-Metford/Enfield rifles and carbines and Vetterlis. I already have plenty of the UVF with Gewehre 88 and M.1904 Mannlichers.

Many thanks.

Try your local library. The literature is huge and there are many photos, including some taken by Childers when delivering to Howth, clearly showing M71s, crates, etc. and offloading in port. They wren't especially security conscious.
