Possible trench weapon or horse dispatcher?

I had to use at any of my worse days, 5 nine millimeters well placed head rounds  to kill an car crashed donkey.

Cant imagine what have to do to kill a horse with such tool.

Very similar, yours is just much older version..well used and as said before recently ground.

Ive seen many sellers over the years try to make a Great War connection with the most basic items purely for financial gain, in reality, I suppose we will never know sadly.

 

They're much more specific over here - anything WW1'ish is a Canakkale / Gallipoli relic!:whistle:

 

Has nobody else tried to read the makers mark on this thing yet? I can't work it out!

Thats looks a reasonable interpretation.

Is there an estimated number of horses died at WW1?
