"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

"When a young man, I read somewhere the following: God the Almighty said, 'All that is too complex is unnecessary, and it is simple that is needed',"

Mikhail Kalashnikov

What's Wrong With This Picture?

We've played this game before...
Just to clear up any confusion among the historically ignorant, these are not Aussie slouch hats, although, if they were the question would still be valid.
These are campaign hats, the pride of the US Army's EM up until WW2.

Anyone? Anyone?

PS. Mean-spirited addendum:
Poser extraordinaire, Georgie Hill, is mad at me so he's changed his home address.
You can find him here.
Aren't we lucky?

But, they're not really "carrying them" are they?
A cheap shot I know but I gotta salvage my self-respect somehow.

The Mosins are probably the Remingtons we made here. And those were probably the field trainers.

Dan brock said...

They are Remingtons but the speculation as to the of the soldiers is different from yours.
