  7. With regards to voting from overseas it worked fine for me. Saying that though I ticked the yes box because I am still a British National, if you tick no I imagine that excludes you from completing the form. Also I linked to Facebook, 1 RTR forum and Soviet-awards forum. Eddie.

  11. Is this any help Chris? Im Ersten Weltkrieg fielen 12 000 jüdische Deutsche Fast einhunderttausend Juden dienten während des Ersten Weltkrieges in Heer und Marine, 12 000 waren gleich zu Kriegsbeginn 1914 als Freiwillige zu den Fahnen geeilt. 77 000 kämpften an vorderster Front, 30 000 wurden mit zum Teil höchsten Auszeichnungen dekoriert und mehr als 20.000 befördert. Unter den jüdischen Soldaten in der kaiserlichen Armee waren 3000 Offiziere, Sanitätsoffiziere und Militärbeamte im Offiziersrang. 12.000 deutsche jüdische Soldaten verloren im Krieg ihr Leben. ...................Der vom Kaiser verkündete "Burgfriede" ließ gesellschaftliche Grenzen in den Hintergrund treten. So wurden nach Kriegsbeginn erstmals wieder jüdische Offiziersaspiranten zu Reserveoffizieren ernannt http://www.spiegel.de/einestages/juedische-soldaten-in-deutschen-armeen-grausame-taeuschung-a-946547.html Regards Eddie
  12. Tony very interesting! I think the guns would have used 250 round belts with probably two belts per box (500 cartridges) Belt size seems the norm, box size can however vary. Regards Eddie
