Jesus. My grandfather, who spent a fortunately very brief time in a Japanese pow camp had a print of that on his wall. To the best of my knowledge, it's still in my parents ' attic

I was watching one of those Chernobyl docs on You Tube and saw this is also in the exclusion zone;

An over the horizon radar system apparently.

It reminded me of this;

It's a listening station from the Vietnam war in Northern Thailand. I saw it from a train heading to Nong Khai.

Apparently there have been a lot of rumours about it's current function but it's NOT a CIA black site. They proved the point by opening it up as a museum. :)

So? The US had nothing to do with Munich, and the UK didn't split Czechoslovakia with Hitler the way Stalin did Poland.

General Tobias Smuts ... with a Krag-Jorgensen.

I'm not sure how he got a Norwegian rifle (which was used by Norwegians, Danish, USA and some Boers), but my grandfather willed his 1897 Steyr model to my dad. It has an odd cartridge box...
