    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

    The condition of that MG42 is mind-blowing - it looks like a different metal finish was used on the barrel coupling, a brownish chemical finish to the metal as opposed to the blue used for the front and rear receiver sections.
    I have never seen this before - are these original finish guns? Absolutely stunning, thanks for posting.

    I collect ww2 MP40 mags too, but you have me beat with codes, there.
    The MP44 is a primo example, too - even finish.

    Very nice, I'm going to navigate back and look over the pics some more, now, lol,
