In: High-Res, WWI
really brings home, how bad it was in the trench warfare with mustard gas and carrier pigeon messangers very erie with the dead soldiers and gas masks
"Gentlemen, we may not make history tomorrow, but we shall certainly change the geography."
#9, man a brutal way to fight a war
9 isn't WW1, late interwar or WW2
excuse me, I was talking about picture #8! it's one of those Bucker Jungmann training aircraft used by the Luftwaffe rebirth
Correct, this picture must be from the 1930ies
Its wwI. Check out the helmets
again: I made a mistake => I was talking about picture #8!

Anyone have any information on #18? I thought the US was the only country which issued shotguns in WWI, but that uniform is unlike anything I had seen before. That also appears to be a Winchester model 12, which was issued by the U.S. in WWI, but doesn't seem to be in the normal trench gun configuration.
From the skull on the helm. It looks like a German Stormtrooper, or Strosstruppen.
There are a lot of things about that photo that just don't look right.
these are amazing
All you ever see info on is normally WWII or the American Civil war. Almost as if this country forgot all about WWI, a horrible horrible war.
My great-uncle fought in WW1. He was a sniper on the Canadian side, and saw action from 1915 until the end of the war. He went over with his two brothers and came home alone. In order to learn more about what he did, I read a great book about snipers by a guy named Martin Pegler, who is the curator for the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, UK. He sent me an amazing photo of a British artilleryman in Salonika, Greece, where the man is firing his cannon while at the exact same moment a sniper's bullet crumples him. It's an amazing feat of timing, and not a little sobering. I'll send it to Rick and see if he can publish it in a DAR or something.
with all the changes from then to now…….some things never change…..we see alot of death….and we owe thanks to each and everyone who came home and those who didn't.
Because of them we're doing what we do everyday….!!!! Thank All of You…
