Thats a nice piece of history!; but I thought the Christmas truce and football was 1914, (99years ago) after then it all got too messy!
Next year you should take it out and shoot it on Christmas day, as a century celebration!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

That is a thought shooting it on Christmas day. It has the markings of the 40th Reserve Infrantry Regiment they were on the Western Front and still had Gew 1888/05s in 1914.
