The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Yeah, there are some 'usual suspects' in there....and more than a few movie stills as well.
Here is an odd looking one. Im not saying it IS a movie still, but it just looks almost unreal.
Not sure Uncle Joe would have approved of that first pic...
Great pics-The captured Bren/Universal carrier appears to have been rearmed with a French Hotchkiss 25mm AT gun-don't know whether the Germans did that or possibly the Allies (Free French?). Also a pic of the rare (2 built) SP 128mm AT gun on the experimental Henschel chassis '12.8 cm Selbstfahrlafette auf VK3001(H)' that was part of the long Tiger development program.
The gun carrier goes to show, that they pressed anything into service.
Here some more rolling iron and some not so rolling iron (any more).
