    The cutoff was used because the brass didn't trust Pvt Tentpeg with 5 rounds. Such a waste of ammunition was unthinkable. Very similar to the more modern day problem with the "spray and pray" mentality.

    Oh look...spray and pray in the trenches

    'Bear' - That WW1 'trench shot' is not 'spray and pray'.

    It is a Hyposcope equipped rifle, which was a relatively precise way to shoot without being exposed. The sights are used with a periscope like arrangement.

    FWIW - The U.S. Kragicon 'cut-off switch' had polished bare metal in sight, when the 'cut-off' lever was in the repeater or feed position. When the rifles were young, it probably looked like a mirror.

    That fella in the trench with that pig sticker on his right hip, is that a smart way to carry a knife like that? Seems like it could go bad even though it's more than likely in a scabbard.
    Just noticed it reading and looking. Apologies for being off topic.

    Those had a steel scabbard that had little clips to hold them in place. They were meant to be carried exactly like that. It does have a scabbard on it, I'm confident.
