Пленный командир разведвзвода 2 батальона Южностеффордширского полка Джек Рейнольдс, кавалер Военного креста за высадку на Сицилии, показывает немецкому оператору "два пальца". Голландия, сентябрь 1944. Два пальца — чисто британский жест полного презрения к противнику. Происходит от жеста средневековых английских лучников, который те показывали французским рыцарям — смотрите, мол, мы ещё дальше вас достанем. Пленным лучникам, как правило, эти два пальца отрубали. #wermacht #втораямировая #великаяотечественнаявойна #ww2 #wwii #worldwar #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #history #historywar1939_1945 #military #militaryhistory #waffenss #totenkopf #photographer #war

Today, 13th November 1715 saw the Battle of Sheriffmuir during the '15 Jacobite Uprising. John Erskine, 6th Earl of Mar and standard bearer for the Jacobite cause raised an army, mainly made of the Highland clans. After capturing Perth he headed south with a force of around 12,000 men. For King George, the 2nd Duke of Argyll, John Campbell, moved his army of 6,000 men out of Stirling to intercept the Jacobites. They met at Sheriffmuir. Argyll's army was greatly outnumbered and was hard pressed to withstand the fearsome Highland charge. His left wing however was overpowered by the Jacobites, and only by his own personal intervention with reserves was the battle saved from disaster. The Scots Greys (of later Waterloo fame) played a major role in checking the Highlander's charge. By nightfall both armies were exhausted and depleted. If Mar had committed his reserves too then many think he would have won the day, but his cautious approach allowed the Government forces to withdraw that night in good order. Both sides claimed victory but it was an inconclusive engagement. The failure of Mar to show a determined attack disheartened many of the clans, and offers of support from Spain and France were withdrawn too. The uprising would very soon fizzle out as a result. #wargames #wargaming #wargamesfigures #wargamesclub #wargamesmagazine #wargamesrules #warlordgames #blackpowder #perryminiatures #scotlandforever #scotland #jacobite #middlesbrough #thelittlecorporal #middlesbroughbusiness #history #militaryhistory #books #historybooks #britisharmy #18thcenturyhistory #britishhistory #sheriffmuir #scottishhistory

🇹🇼 Taiwanese troops with their T86 Assault Rifles photographed sometime in the 1990s. The Republic of China wore an ERDL-derived camouflage uniform from the early 90s until the adoption of a pixelated pattern in 2007. The ERDL pattern has a few variations in color. #camo #camouflage #camohistory #taiwan #taiwanese #taiwan🇹🇼 #republicofchina #erdl #asia #asiancamo #historiansunion #military #militaryhistory #uniform

In June 1969, Honduras and El Salvador met in a two-leg 1970 FIFA World Cup qualifier. There was fighting between fans at the first game in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa on 8 June 1969, which Honduras won 1–0. The second game, on 15 June 1969 in the Salvadoran capital of San Salvador, which was won 3–0 by El Salvador, was followed by even greater violence. On 27 June 1969, the day the play-off match took place in Mexico City, El Salvador dissolved all diplomatic ties with Honduras, stating that in the ten days since the game in El Salvador 11,700 Salvadorans had been forced to flee Honduras. It said that as Honduras had "done nothing to prevent murder, oppression, rape, plundering and the mass expulsion of Salvadoreans", there was little point in maintaining relations. . . . . . .

One of the highlights from my TDY to Germany last month was visiting the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History in Brussels, Belgium. This museum was one of the most impressive museums I have ever seen and the hangar of aircraft they had was just breathtaking. And, of course, I had to get a photo with my Belgian bae. ✈️🇧🇪

Finnish army used Austro-Hungarian M17 helmet. Unfortunately this has been refurbished by the Finnish army, you can notice it from the extra liner pin. Great helmet nevertheless. #finnisharmy #ww2helmet #militaryhistory #militaria #militariacollector #militaryantiques #winterwar #warhistory #continuationwar #jatkosota #talvisota #sotahistoria #sotilaskypärä #suojeluskunta #sotarompe

Let’s see if anyone can name all 5 uniforms and rifles, comment below! 🇨🇦 This was part of the Remembrance Day Commemorations in Toronto, great to see accurate representations of Canadian 🍁 uniforms of past and present.

Today in 1814, American Civil War General Joseph Hooker was born. He served the Union throughout the war and was one of the North's better leaders. His reputation is sullied due to his stunning defeat by Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863. We took this picture of the battlefield from near the site of his position when we were there in 2018.
