  1. Hi, a group of the members are watching the female mud wrestling world cup, but will hopefully be back as soon as Yemen wins..... :-)
  2. Indeed, I think as the war progressed men in uniform began to calculate the odds and made their peace with them...
  3. ... incase they jinx you... Heinrich Näpfel was born on the 7.2.1897 in Gunzenhausen. M;obilised in 1916 he joined the Bavarian 19th Reserve Pionier Company Nr. 19. He was killed on a Patrol on the Somme on the 2.6.1918 with an artillery splinter to the head. I saw this on ebay ages ago, but the "buy it now" ended and I had forgotten to buy it, So I was happy to get it this time round. Strangely he looks to have more Infantry kit although he was in Pionier units all the way through.... "A small momento from your friend Heinrich Näpfel in case I should not return"
