  4. TheGronkster, Great photo. I found this on the net that might be of some help: - Max Immelmann in Valenciennes after his 7th victory. A Morane Saulnier Type P from the British Air Force was shot down by Max Immelmann over Raismes on December 15, 1915. The aircraft has serial number 5087 and was flown by Charles Edward Tudor-Jones, second lieutenant of the N ° 3 Squadron, reports the Commonwealth War Graves Commission . Tudor-Jones is resting at the Raismes Communal Cemetery (Plot II, row A, grave 3). The shooter was Lieutenant Alan Victor Hobbs who was killed in the process. He is buried next to the pilot (Plot II, Row A, Grave 4). Royal Flying Corps MS.24 Type P linen.m.miraheze.org/wiki/Morane-Saulnier_Type_P

    Imperial German Officer Shoulder Boards

    Ben, I used to post a lot on GMIC. https://gmic.co.uk/topic/65195-some-random-postcard-pics/ I have a box somewhere of items like those in the above link, is that the sort of thing you are after? If you do a search of my user name on that forum and WRF you should see the sort of thing I have. I am not sure what my pal has but if we strike a deal I will swap with him for something my direction. Rich

    Brexit Impact, if any?

    Well said Rich,I have tried to follow this over here on this side of the pond,because it will affect the world.I am reminded of something Will Rogers said....."Common sense is not an issue in politics,it's an affliction. Neither is honesty,honesty is not an issue in politics,it's a miracle."
  10. Don't accidentally push the trigger. Whole new meaning for "got a light?"

    Brexit Impact, if any?

    Well. What a week in EU politics, 'Shotgun Ushey' as she is known over here is now set to take on running the EU after she has destroyed the Bundeswehr? I don't think she is home and dry yet as there may be some legal procedings following her after the Gorch Fock disaster. We still have a tank regiment here on high readiness with only a companies worth of tanks, laughable! All my German pals are very upset with her replacement already, I will have to do some homework on her but it does not sound good. The German press has warned that 500,000 German jobs are at risk with a no deal Brexit, that is something Mr Junker never told the locals over here and they are quite worried about it. The car industry is Germanies strongest card and if that is damaged then they will not be able to pay for Merkels promise that we will 'work though it' because you need jobs in the first place. A Germany in recession would be the end of the EU and in its current form I don't think that would be a bad thing. The United States of Eurabia will only spell disaster for our kids and grand kids. I honsetly don't know how this is happening in Europe. Our grandparents gave so much for this shti! Rich

    Rich,that would be an amazing thing but it will be a robot if we do.Apollo was just getting really efficient and precise when the project was cancelled.A horrible horrible mistake by this country!So much we have today is a direct result of the Apollo program. Politicians got involved ..... need I say more?
