Tour of the Arms and Weapons Gallery – August 20, 2017

Two Wars and a Mutiny.
The two bronze bells in the Arms and Weapons Gallery seem out of place at first. But when you “look” closer an uncanny link between the Opium Wars in China and the Anglo-Mysore wars and the Sepoy Mutiny in India emerge. This walk will help explore this link while also admiring the fine collection of arms and weapons in the gallery.
