    To be fair alot depended on the Variant and obviously the maintenance

    A Lanchester submachine gun with a RN Tactical Light attached.

    And an interesting thing about Heydrich...he got septic because of the horsehair that was used to stuff the car seats cushions got blasted into his body and surgeons did not remove all of it.

    Thats the one, More of a finished product than the early Sten. I didn't realise it was horse hair. Pity S.O.E didn't get his boss

    Since I am better off doing the Naval Quiz, as compared to the Land Forces quiz, I won't give the answer. However, after some deep research using the picture (title doesn't say Battle of), I did come across it's title. I then used the title to look up the historical significance of this particular engagement. This to the Army would be the same as John Paul Jones to the Navy and his "I have not yet begun to fight." In WWII this is Bastogne and Leyte Gulf.

    That must be James VI of Scotland, I of England, who succeeded Elizabeth I. No idea what town it is.

    Actually it was a bluegrass festival at a brewery.

    Yes it’s Parker’s Revenge. It is the spot on the Boston Road where the Lexington Company of Militia got into the fight after recovering from the hammering they took earlier that morning.
