Quite surprising isn't it - Have you managed to spot the Pak 40 outside one of the ranges in Lulworth?

In The Halls Of Valhalla, Where the Brave Shall Live Forever

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.

One enemy is never enough, two is far too many
"Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid."
Jo Hukam

went to a steam rally today. poking about on the stalls of purveyors of rust for the discerning i found a spanner. stamped on it was "Rifle, Boys, Mk1*" . so i am now the proud owner of an anti tank spanner!


Like you I found this leather cap thing amongst some items given to me. It lay around for ages. It looks as if it was the leather hood you would put on a hawk! It turns out to be the leather cover for the Boys muzzle. It's now look after waiting for the muzzle!
