Experience in thick equatorial jungles. Or in thorn bush jesse pretty much anywhere in Africa.

Also perhaps those very long rifle barrels on military rifles were perhaps becoming a thing of the past in the start of the Twentieth Century colonial era. IMO a left over from the long BP rifles and muzzle loaders of the past.
