Re: Happy Thanksgiving

Instead of TG & the deer hunt this year, I decided to stay home get up at 04:00 and and watch The HBO Pacific series all the way through- :lol: 10 hours I forgot how spectacular it is. I guess the last time I saw this was on HBO at a motel when on a long term archaeology project in 2010 & had HBO ca...

Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

In the book, The Road to the Armistice, by Richard J Connors, 2018 a foot note indicates some speculation on his part that lamps were made by the possible use of left over WW I shells rather than ones just from the explosion. Odd. I wonder the basis of this speculation. Screen Shot 2019-11-26 at 6.3...

Re: You WW I buffs might enjoy this.

Cool, mine was a Marine in WW I and dad was also a jar head in WW II, dad got grand pas 1917 Enfield, but unfortunately he sporterized it in the 1950s for deer hunting. Dad cut 1 inch off the barrel and added a different front sight. After he died, I got the 1917 grand pa had and dads bring backs. S...
