    Interesting photo showing Korean cadets with Russian instructors circa 1895. Korea was given between 3000-7000 Berdans (depending on the source)

    This is the best quality photo that I have.





    I apologize, but I came across other information.
    A rifle Berdan 2, was transferred to Korea less than 1,000 pieces.
    Perhaps this information is erroneous, I do not insist on the right thing.

    Did these Korean troops fight on the Russian side at Port Arthur, etc.?

    No, the Koreans were just "sympathizers".
