The Glosters would've still had Vickers and Brens in Korea would they not.  You can change a barrel on a Bren almost as quickly as you can change a magazine, and a Vickers could deliver sustained fire almost indefinitely. They wouldn't have lasted long if they'd been equipped with this weapon, which on reflection is, I think, a FN Minimi LMG, which is all the more reason for not mistreating it like this.  LMGs are not intended to deliver sustained fire.  

Got that from an eyewitness account in a book about Korea John. Forgoten which. Gloster Crossing was defened by a reinforced section which withdrew back to the hill. Know the BREN in it's L4 guise, excellent weapon.

Even the horses were Aryan...

Interesting find.  In the first shots of tanks, the leading three S35 also seem to have the 'bedstead' radio aerial of a befehlspanzer too.  I've never seen that before.  Also, did you notice the Bedford MWD 15cwts being used as tractors for the Pak 36?

If you play ECW/TYW games you may be interested in this video I found by chance about the accuracy & ballistics of 17th century wheel lock pistols.

Effective range = get next to someone and hope it fires....

Managed to get access to a printer - doors are ~5mm high, so too small for 10mm.

He has a later video for making trees/woods. Clever technique, but I can't work out if they're genius or not good:

Some nice stuff on Bren  Carriers... thanks Guys! I have always assumed that the Bren was fired through the Commander's 'port'... where they have the Boyes in these 'early' movies The 'up top' position MUCH more versatile.  Use of Mortar also interesting! Driving around with a 'live' in the tube?  :o

Think that dismounted action was the usual use, though. Wonder how reliable Bren Carriers were? Saw a  prog where modern battlefield researchers found a guy with a working Carrier 'on site' and they were going to have a 'spin' around the town where action took place... BUT, it 'broke' half way down the street!  :(

The 'Tank' film good too. Hadn't thought that a Matilda would be able to cope with slopes as steep. As for A13s crashing through building or Splashing through a river... well, one can assume that 'someone' had recce'd for cellar or had a plodge to check river bottom, first! lol.  ;)

They were.  When the Boys was used it just replaced the Bren.  The Bren shown here is on its AA mount.
