Some more historical trivia- My great uncle, L. Worthington Moseley did, according to my grandmother, take part in the Boxer Rebellion and supposedly got into the Dowager Queen's boudoir and took some of her jewelry. At the time they seemed to think it was OK to do that, but looking back I question the ethics of it. I don't know what unit he was with, or his rank at the time or what weapons they were armed with, but I still have a Krag 1899 bayonet of his, along with some very sharp knives from the Philippine Insurrection that he brought home. He died in 1924 of appendicitis as he was traveling across country with his regiment on a train. He's buried at the Presidio of San Fran with his father and mother.
