Hi, Joseph, please don’t knock the MAS 36. It saved my life in Algeria. Nothing wrong with a weapon that spits out bullets fromthe front end, when you are in a fire fight.

Not fancy looking, I know, but it worked fine for me.

I don't mean to change the subject, but have you seen the film 'the 12th man'? it is a must. True story. It takes place in Norway in 1943. English subtitles.

Some of us including Joseph Cosgrove have been at the sharp end and experienced the whiff of grape shot.

We prefer not to make a song and dance about it. I do however plead guilty to sending part of my service records to an Aspirant who I highly regard.

Finally Volt ( Senior member and occasional Mod) also served in Algeria
