Nicely done. Years ago I interviewed an vet who had been a Lewis gunner (with the Cameronians) during the war. He told me that when he first reported for training he saw two soldiers pulling a little cart with a Lewis gun on it. He figured that having that cart would make life a little easier for him so he volunteered as a gunner. He never saw one of those carts again.

Standard! :lol:

It is a nice museum. I was in Kansas City last weekend for the playoff football game with my sons. Game did not go so well but there is a lot of really excellent barbecue places all around Kansas City as an added bonus to the museum. They also have a very nice Negro baseball league Museum.
