Caption

Bullet lodged in soldier's foot (1899). Historical X-ray of the foot of a Boer War (1899-1902) soldier, showing a gunshot wound. A Mauser bullet has become lodged between the metatarsal bones of the big and second toes. The bullet has not broken any bones; but the end phalanges of the toes are deformed, perhaps from tight army boots and long marches. This radiograph was made by the soldier positioning his foot above a photographic plate, while an open electric discharge tube emitted the X-rays. N060/010, which shows the soldier having the X-ray taken). The Boer War was fought between Britain and the Boers, the Dutch settlers in South Africa.
