Re: 15cm on railcar

I remember seeing a photo or two where Russian POWs being used as ammo passers on the roofs of flak towers.
On the 120 we had separate 50-pound powder cases and 55-pound projectiles. Firing 10 rounds per minute got us really tired really quickly. I'm glad it was peace time annual qualification and not sustained war time AAA defense.
Here's a link to the M! 120 mm AAA gun and its deployment in San Francisco

Good stuff. It looks as if it is from Waffen Revue originally, going on the printed bits and subject matter.

I only got one advert, at the end.

Re: Cotentin Peninsula 1944

It's on the west coast of France, very close to the allied landings at Normandy. Check the web for "Battle of Cherbourg - WWII".


It was necessary to suppress the fort and concentration of German forces there to prevent them from attacking the Allies who had landed and were proceeding against the Germans in occupied France.

Best Regards. It's good to see Dr Robinson's time and efforts to preserve this portion history have survived the demise of Yahoo.

Hi Nicholas

We still have everything on groups.io though ?

Incidentally and probably irrelevant to here is that I have had regular emails (Not to here) bouncing over the last two weeks. I only realised yesterday that they all had yahoo addresses. Is anyone aware of a wider Yahoo problem ?

Cheers

Re: WWII German Armored train models

Their website shows them to be 3-rail "O" gauge.


But at those prices I'd think they'd be put on display rather than run.
