    US 90th ID Personnel use the 105mm guns at the recently captured Fort de Guentrange in Thionville France to fire on Germanicon forces - September 12, 1944
    Originally a German fort before WW1, the area was annexed by France after WW1, the original 100mm guns were replaced with 105mm Krupp guns captured in WW1 and the fort was incorporated into the Frenchicon Maginot Line defense system
    The fort overlooks the Moselle valley and its western approaches, as well as the railway lines to the west of Thionville
    The Germans name for the fort was “Feste Ober-Gentringen”
    After WW2, the French Army used the fort to store munitions until 1971, it is now open for tours, see comments for present day pictures

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    The gentleman walking out the doorway seems quite below average height compared to the known length of the rifle he is toting.
