    I came across this yesterday on the net, I would site a source but sadly cant remember, so it is someone on the WRF's originalClick image for larger version.

    anyway

    Wanted to share this because there is so much going on in this picture the more I look the more I see (that sounded dumb). We have helmets with decals, the pile behind no decal, the guy issuing them has a cuff title just all around interesting to me

    regards

    Looks like Grossdeutschland !!
    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

    It strikes me that this is a familiar scene to anyone who has served in any army! Recruit: "It don't fit Sarge" Quartermaster: "There are three sizes of army kit my lad, L, XL and FM"
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
