A trench Photo with an extra twist


Recommended Posts

Another photo which droped in my mailbox today , a typical trench scene with some veterans showing up before the camera

you can see in their faces that they have seen more then anyone should in a lifetime.

But the interesting thing is in the background :speechless1:

A snipers armour , I´m not sure that they where used for snipers only but this is the first card I got in + 20 years of collecting

showing this protection armour.

The postman made my day :cheeky:

Great photo. The armor was actually issued to assault troops, sentries, and machine gunners. Assault troops rejected it because it was too heavy, cumbersome, and noisy. It could be worn on the back or the front.
