I was issued with a steel helmut years ago! Too late they told me it was to be worn on the head & not kept under the bed for night use

I have many family members that served in WW1,.WW2 and Korea. To all the members here that did their duty in far away hostile places we owe a debt and our respect and I for one thank them and remember their sacrifice for our freedom and democracy.

Dave, your tours of duty show something about you ,and you are not forgotten.........John

Thanks for the kind words John ! All I can say is that WAR is a mugs game & should be avoided at all possible cost ! Unless we send all the Polititions  to do the dirty work for us  !  I'd like to see that

There's a very true quote in All Quiet on The Western Front. They were discussing politicians and the quote is

" Give em all the same grub and all the same pay and the war would be over and done in a day!"

I agree with Dave wholeheartedly on that. They should go and see their mates get cut down at the side of them. Its a sickening sight Shame Maggie Thatcher wasn't with us at Goose Green she wouldn't have crowed so loud after that!!

allan... politician...

 

it is funny that you mention thatcher, that war hungry mongrel.

i belive she has said in her life i will touch war politics on anygiven day of the week, but i wont touch combat politics with a 10 foot pole.

 

i dont like that women.

 

ok anyway. i got to talking with a few mates at school about this (all disagree with me). i said the SMLE is the best WWI rifle. back in the trenches it was the best. they came up with a point saying that the smelly had a rate of twist of 1:16 which made it extreamly in accurate. of course, everyone knows that the german mauser was the most accurate, but who cares about accuracy when 'pots shots' are the word of the day.

whats the rate of twist in a smelly? i couldent answer that. but it dosent matter, i am sure two 174grn bullets make up for one... .

 

still, go the smelly.

THe SMLE came into it's own as it was the more robust action when it came to mud & snow! It was  not as over engineered as the Mauser ! I think from memory  the rate of twist is 1.16 . The Enfield was blessed with the simlisity of the action & large Mag capasity
