I painted this awhile ago on a piece of sheet music, Save Britannia, that I found in my attic. The book, America’s Heritage of Song, was with other papers that were all dated prior to 1925. The frame is almost black from char with highlights of rich browns. The frame edges of the paper had also been burned. The colors and texture blend together making this piece of history a piece of art as well. $175 Venmo, PayPal and credit cards are accepted. $25 nationwide Shipping #artandhistory #historicalart #colonistsheetmusic #antiquemusic #jamesthomson #savebritannia #militaryhistory #navysong #inkart #cheekyarentyou

Today I went to visit an old friend. Tony owns and operates Armies in Plastic www.armiesinplastic.com he produces the largest currently in production range of 54mm plastic toy soldiers anywhere in the world. He used to have a storefront right across the street from West Point Military Academy in Highland Falls NY but found his in person sales decreasing and online sales booming so he made the decision to go completely online. This is a small part of his warehouse in Wappingers Falls NY. If you call the phone number on his website you can arrange an in person viewing of his current lines and make purchases in person. His prices are the best out there with 20 miniatures at 12$. Yes 54mm is large for wargames but I've played them and they can be lots of fun. The low cost means bigger armies and it's a great way to get kids involved in the hobby. This was a huge nostalgic blast from the past for me today I hope you all visit his website! #armiesinplastic #toysoldiers #toysoldier #history #militaryhistory #minis #miniatures #wargaming #miniwargaming #tabletopgaming #paintingminiatures

📚Picked up some old gems for a buck fifty today. 😾Cat got jealous for 3 seconds when we stopped petting her. Typical. An amusing article in Mechanix from 1945 says soldiers with combat fatigue (PTSD), were getting treated with Sodium Pentothal....everybody knows sodium pentathol is only good for interrogating enemy spies, or your roommate to find out if he ate the last of your vegan ice cream...I know you ate it Derek!

We might be bookaholics but we're not quitters. Books rule. It's just a fact.

historicdogtags. First Lieutenant Orlando H. Koenig was born in 1920 and was from Sauk,

First Lieutenant Orlando H. Koenig was born in 1920 and was from Sauk, Wisconsin. Koenig enlisted in the Air Corps on November 8, 1941 as an Aviation Cadet. After becoming a pilot, he was assigned to the 535th Bomb Squadron, 381st Bomb Group, 8th Air Force on January 16, 1943. He was an original crew member of his squadron and flew the B-17 Flying Fortress. He flew 11 bombing missions before he was shot down on August 19, 1943. Their target was a Nazi airfield in Gilze-Rijen, Holland. Koenig's plane would lead the formation. During this mission, Lt. Koenig was shot down while piloting B-17 #42-3101 "Man o' War", by 20mm cannon fire causing the inboard sector of the right wing to catch fire. He left formation by diving slightly to the right. 6 parachutes deployed. It was later found that 4 of the crew were killed in action. MIA crew: 1st Lt Orlando H. Koenig 2nd Lt Joseph L. Margapan 1st Lt Leonard L. Spivey 2nd Lt Edward O'Loughlin T/Sgt Leo I. Perkins S/Sgt Arthur L. Everett S/Sgt Walter J. Buran T/Sgt Russell Chester S/Sgts Wilbert G. Jones S/Sgt Eugene A. Sabourin Koenig was then captured by the Germans after parachuting into Nazi occupied Holland. He was then sent to Stalag Luft III, where he spent the rest of the war. He was present there during the "Great Escape," which took place there in March 1944. He survived the war and went back afterwards to his home in Wisconsin. Pictured is the dog tag he wore while in captivity. . . . . . . #aircorps #wwii #ww2 #military #airforce #wwiiplanes #ww2planes #wwiiaircraft #ww2aircraft #wwiihistory #ww2history #militaryhistory #militaria #airforce #usairforce #artifact #vintage

Some groups from today while I was sighting in the Vepr 7.62x39, the first picture was from 50 yards 5 shot group, 2nd picture at 50 yards 5 shot group, 3rd picture was at 50 yards 10 shot group and the last picture was at 100 yards 5 shot group...I'm satisfied with myself... I gotta say the 1-6x24mm ACSS Raptor scope from @primaryarms is amazing, it's very clear and easy to sight in. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good scope under $500 bucks. Mount used is from @rs_regulate and it works great too very light weight and doesn't move once its on, I highly recommend this if you have a side folding vepr, as not many mounts will work with it. but ts regulate made one that works perfectly, will be picking up one more for my other vepr!!! • • • • • • • • • • • #ak47 #kalashnikov #kalashlife #762x39 #kalashwood #pewpew #2a #militaryhistory #military #firearms #weapons #guns #gunporn #vepr #russia #molot #usa #az #freedom #rsregulate #righttobeararms #primaryarms #raptor #scope #dmr #rifle #green #wood #rpk #heavyduty

At the range with my Arsenal Sam7r testing out the new bosnian bho polymer windowed mags, so far so good. No issues what so ever with feeding, I used wolf performance 123 gr hollow points, and wolf military classic 124 gr ball ammo, but @akoperatorsunionlocal4774 will be putting them thought a real torture test... can't wait for his results. • • • • • • • • • • #ak47 #kalashnikov #kalashlife #762x39 #kalashwood #pewpew #2a #militaryhistory #military #firearms #weapons #guns #arsenal #sam7 #bulgaria #usa #az #freedom #goodtimmes #merica #acunity #bih #bosnia #magazine #classic #wood #reddot #sight #pka #venezuela

The front of the monument represents the charge of four companies led by General Farnsworth against the Alabama Brigade at Gettysburg near the close of the battle on July 3rd. General Kilpatrick ordered Farnsworth to make the charge and questioned his bravery when Farnsworth protested. Farnsworth went on to lead the charge, which started near this monument. When Farnsworth was mortally wounded, Wells took command of the survivors and led them back to Union lines.

monochrome_warships. Recently managed to purchase this little envelope of delights. Before

Recently managed to purchase this little envelope of delights. Before photography became much cheaper and accessible to all, it was possible to buy sets of photographs on various subjects. I've managed to get hold of a set published by 'M. Dieterle & Sohn, Kiel', titled 'Deutsche Kriegsschiffe' or German Warships. The rest translates as '12 photographic pictures of all major ship types of the Reichsmarine'. All for the sum of 0.75 Reichsmark, which would be around 4 Euros or £3.50 in today's money. Judging by the ships included, flags flown, and the fact that the envelope refers to the Reichsmarine, I believe these were most likely published in early 1935. The numbers on the photos have been added by me post-scanning for reference. All ship types are that given by the publisher with translation and any other info in brackets: (1) Torpedoboot Greif von der Raubvogel-Klasse (Torpedo boat of the Bird of Prey Class - also known as Möwe or Type 23) (2) Artillerieschulboot Bremse (Artillery training sloop) (3) Segelschulschiff Gorch Fock (Sail training ship - amazingly this vessel is still in existence as a museum ship) (4) Linienschiff Schleswig-Holstein (Battleship Schleswig-Holstein. Interesting juxtaposition in this photo; in the background is the Laboe Naval Memorial which is in the state of...Schleswig-Holstein) (5) Linienschiff Schlesien . To be continued in my next post.... #warships #warship #worldofwarships #reichsmarine #germannavy #battleship #history #navalhistory #militaryhistory #navalwarfare #waratsea #monochrome #sepia .
