    The sequel to PU1/59/10/7, this shows two gamekeepers and Mr Snapwincke being thrown backwards by the discharge of the mitrailleuse. The caption explains that 'owing to some mistake, after several misses, all the barrels go off at once', causing the weapon to kick out 'right and left and all round'.
