Hi, Israel didn't exist in 1945. Maybe in this case, the presumed murderer is jew but his nationality was polish not israelian. Why blaming Israel for a "crime" committed by the communist governements of Poland and USSR. If these two governements had done their "job" by controlling their administrat...

Hi,

There are too much "patron". This forum looks like a mexican army where there are more generals than soldiers ( french expression). :wink:
Why not a rank with the speciality like the german generals : Patron der Artillerie, Patron der Infanterie.... :wink:

So long.

Hi David,

You're welcome.
The pun works in french too. For a Jug, it's usual to be filled with liquid. :wink:

Hi,
In 'Pearl Harbour', the hero serves with the RAF in the Battle of Britain. No USAAF officers served in the Battle of Britain; the Americans were all volunteers
Especially with Spitfire Mk V in 1940 ( one sees the 20mm guns).

Hi,

A polish carpenter ? Well, in France, we prefer the polish plumber :D
Constitution or not, I don't thing it will change anything for most of the europeans.
At least, without the constitution, we don't have to respect the articles 64 & 65 :D

Hi,

It's possible but it's the number in my book. But you're maybe right. Maybe it's a typing mistake or maybe it's all the vehicles lost by the BEF in France in 1940. We'd rather to wait for more info.

Hi, Just a nitpick. The bay of Carqueiranne is near Toulon ( east of Toulon) and not near Marseille. Several P 38 ( or F5) were lost this day. The Saint-Exupery's F5 was found between the Calanque of Sormiou and the Riou island, 10/15 km south of Marseille ( According to a number found on an engine ...

Hi, I know it wasn't a french concept, I just meant that the frenchmen thought to put this "option" on their Famas. For a skilled soldier, it takes 2 minutes to transform a right-handed Famas in a left-handed Famas. On a SA 80, where is the ejector ? I mean is it on the breech or fixed on the carcas...
