Re: US Entry into WWI

Thank you. this initially seemed like a good balanced book until I read "years of senseless slaughter for hollow purposes". The originator of these comments clearly has no idea nor proper awareness of the situation 'at that time'. Too many people criticise decisions made in both world wars yet had t...

Re: MG Souvenirs

Cool pictures! While most people were content taking small items like metals and bayonets the Australians actually took a tank. Looks like we might get a chance to see it and maybe even give a presentation. GB had one too from WWI but may have been used for WWII salvage/scrap. 8-[ Australia convert...

US Entry into WWI

Hopefully not too sensitive, and I think I am reasonably knowledgable on British/Commonwealth WWI Battle history, but, I have read somewhere that some US Commanders after WWI were legally prosecuted for their unnecessary combat actions towards the end of the war. Is this correct or just an 'old wive...

Imperial MG Postcards

If the moderator is happy, I would like to start a thread showing coloured and black and white 'postcards' depicting MG WWI scenes. Some are Christmas cards but the Germans were quite advanced on coloured postcards for the troops to send home. http://i795.photobucket.com/albums/yy237/MarkFinneran/1%...

Re: Artillery Sight

Can we see images of the sight? Just as with British WWI issue, the early machine gun optics were field artillery pieces and then became more refined and dedicated MG items. This is interesting!

Particularly bastardised existing main mounts. Dold Goldsmith's excellent book shows a few. The MG is of interest though as this I believe to be a...
