Czechoslovak mountain infantry, 1930s. My grandfather served in 2nd Mountain infantry Regiment in 1925-27, training exactly in these mountains. We had a great time.

Very interesting Jurinko.

Thanks for the pics. Can you give a google-earth location of that ?

That is some beautiful terrain in those photos. Are those vz. 24 rifles in your grandfather's pics?

Yes, they were introduced after Mannlichers in 20ties. Mine was produced in 1938. Unfortunately it fires just blank rounds now, but at least no special permission is needed for it yet.

Cool! A vz. 24 is definitely on my list of firearms to buy. I hear they're very well-made.

Nice Keith, must have been a very fun experience flying in a Tiger Moth.


I will ignore all ideas for new works and engines of war, the invention of which has reached its limits and for whose improvement I see no further hope.

Here I am.

Taken sometimes last year in Western China.
Only one road, and still I had to point out which way to go to my wife. Typical.

A scene from the Don Cherry movie, me (in the back ground in the off white jersey) and another extra decided we'd make it look like we're fighting for the puck as Don Cherry lines up Ron Ellis for the 'two bit player hits the million dollar player' scene.

First post here, been lurking for a while, figured I'd start off with a pic. smile Me (left) and a buddy in his Cessna 175.
