Hello all,

I recently joined this forum and wanted to introduce myself.  I love MG08's and 08/15's and have been collecting the various bits and bobs associated with them, and will probably end up in debtor's prison...  Here is my 08/15 and a few doodads.

Hello Chris and the other Gentlemen , here in Argentina our Army used the German handbook for indirect fire with MGs translated to Spanish . with modifications relative to the main MG in use ,the 1917 28 Colt Browning water cooled in 7.65 mauser. from 1925 to 1978 the handbook was in use . the Colt Browning was in use until 1970 ,then replaced with the FN MAG in 7,62 NATO, but remained in service for the Movilization Bataillons , Well ,i forgot the indirect fire . as it was put in practice according the German handbook it was highly lethal ,specially against troop concentrations that believe to be safe benhind a ridge or a wood and a distances up to 3000 yards .

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
