ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

Postby DuncaninFrance » Wed Oct 06, 2010 10:43 am

I am a member of the Royal British Legion, Bordeaux & S.W. France Branch and last Sunday was our AGM. I offered to put on a display of weapons and books that would show the general progression from Flintlock to Centrefire.
Here are 3 pictures of the display which was well received. There was astonishment when I pointed out the WWII rounds and the NATO 7.62 with the current 5.56mm :shock: :shock:








Here are links for those who are not familiar with the Legion.
