🇬🇧Another picture of the same British soldier showing body armours and accessories: in this pic he's showing the Anglo-French "Gauntlet Dagger", sometime also known as "Punching Dagger". It was designed to be worn on the bearer's arm like a glove for close quarter combats. It's origins are obscure. A later entry, made in 1920 lists it as: 'spiked gauntlet, German?'. Subsequently it has been captioned as the 'Anglo-French Gauntlet'. No written evidence appears to exist for either of these later identifications. It is tempting to remark that it was an appurtenance favoured only by the very serious trench fighter. The anachronistic, though undoubtedly terrifying, aspect of this weapon, in many ways sums of technological paradoxes of First World War trench fighting.🇬🇧 🔺follow my partners🔺 @sentinelle_del_lagazuoi @ww 1metaldetecting @ww 1photos_info @ww 2historydaily  @oliverwhite 0608 @war_history_enthusiast @history_ 20thcentury @memories_of_wars ___________________________________________ #ww1 #wwi #ww2 #wwii #worldwars #worldwarone #thegreatwar #greatwar #relics #battlefieldrelics #worldwartwo #war #ww1centenary #reenactment #historiansunion #history #german #guns #weapons #airsoft #centenary #tank #soldier #army #rifle #trenches #vintage #military #warfare ...

1GM - 1918 Nel bosco distrutto, una postazione americana del 23° fanteria USA, spara con "Canon d'Infanterie de 37 modèle 1916" da 37 mm durante un avanzata contro le postazioni trincerate tedesche. Le forze americane presero Belleau Wood, un boschetto di alberi vicino al fiume Marne il 26 giugno. La battaglia era iniziata il 6 giugno quando la Brigata dei Marines attaccò attraverso campi aperti contro mitragliatrici tedesche, avanzando a baionetta e subendo orrende perdite. (colore mio) WW1 - 1918 In the shattered wood, gun crew from regimental headquarters company, 23rd Infantry, firing with a "Canon d'Infanterie de 37 modèle 1916" 37mm during an advance against German entrenched positions. American forces captured Belleau Wood, a copse of trees near the Marne River, on June 26. The battle had begun on June 6 when the American Marine Brigade attacked across open fields versus German machine-guns advancing with bayonets level and taking horrendous casualties.

🇨🇵French Poilu of the 1re Division d'Infanterie wearing a TN tampon gas mask with Goggles in 1915. It was a rudimental model of gas mask, like those of many other armies at the beginning of the gas warfare in 1915.🇨🇵

Article 231 of the Treaty of Versailles is often known as the war guilt clause. Now many of you probably already know what the war guilt clause is and as you can see from the photo, the war guilt clause is being depicted on the paper, saying “the German people must pay for all damage to civilians on land and sea or from the air”. In short term this is saying that the German people have to pay for all damage and it doesn’t matter what it is. Now as you would expect the war guilt clause would be the most controversial of all the articles of the Treaty of Versailles. From the article it states, “The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies”. This right here is saying that Germany is the key factor to why World War 1 started and because of that they have to pay for everything as I said above and they have to take blame for the war. As you would expect the German people did not react well to the article and the Treaty of Versailles as a whole and they would feel as the Treaty was a humiliation towards there country, which lead to protest, as well as many political rivalry’s. The war guilt clause was only the begging of something much bigger than the world had thought. Many had thought that World War 1 would be the, “War to End All Wars”, but it really wasn’t. All the war did was lead to another war and then another war, all because of the war guilt clause and the treaty of Versailles as a whole..

Today we're remembering Hospital Apprentice, 2nd Class, Henry J. Meyer. He was born #OnThisDay in 1896 and served at the Naval Training Station and Hospital in Newport, Rhode Island during World War I. He died of pneumonia there on February 19, 1919, and his name is included on the cenotaph.

In 1917 a collision of two World War I ships caused an explosion so powerful that it leveled 2.5 sq. miles of Halifax and injured 9,000 people - all in one-fifteenth of a second, 5 times faster than the blink of an eye! The Mont-Blanc carried 3,000 tons of explosives bound for Europe, to aid the Allies in WWI and was entering Halifax Harbor just as the ship, Imo, was attempting to leave.  Attempting to pass one another, a deadly dance ensued that would ignite the Mont-Blanc's volatile cargo with the force of 2.9 kilotons of TNT—the most powerful explosion ever at that time.  The Mont-Blanc was vaporized, all that remained was its anchor. As word of the explosion spread heroes from all walks of life came to the aid of the city and the victims.  Boston sent trains full of doctors, nurses and medical supplies. Bacon tells the story of the ships, the cargo, the captains and pilots, the explosives, the people and the community, before and after. I found the general minutiae overwhelming at times and I felt Bacon went into too much detail on too many citizens while laying out the story (and following up the story). Still, the main part of the book, the part that explains the explosives, the ships, what led up to the explosion, the investigation after the explosion and the ensuing lawsuits are all part of a fascinating story. #emptynestreader #bookreview #thegreathalifaxexplosion #byjohnubacon #nonfiction #history #worldwarone #WWI #explosion #halifax #canada 🇨🇦 #bookstagramalabama  #readalittlelearnalittlelivealittle.

One of my very favorite follows is @heightsminiww2museum. This young gentleman really has a passion for World War II history and has amassed quite a collection of artifacts from the era. Today, he took possession of a good looking Carcano short rifle that I suspect is a 91/24 or 91/28. The receiver reads 1917, but it is obviously not in original M1891 configuration. -

Congratulations, young man, on your growing collection. I look forward to seeing what you add next! -
