Manuals And Thompsons: A Calendar Photograph?
Posted 10 April 2005 - 01:36 PM
Anyway, I just thought I'd share what I think is a pretty cool picture with everyone. Maybe it could be a part of the calendar that has been discussed in this forum recently? Maybe I could superimpose a couple of 21's and 28's to make it a little more correct for the age of the paper material?

Nice collection and photo. What is the name of the bottom Handbook, the one with the fold out? I don't think I have seen this one before.
Thanks for sharing.

The manual with the foldout is part of a 3-volume series published by the British publisher Gale and Polden during WWII called "The Armourer's Handbook," by Labore. The Thompson section is in "Part II - Machine Carbines and Pistols."
If you would like a digital copy of the Thompson section, send me an e-mail. As long as your e-mail can receive about a 5 meg file, I can send it to you.

My collection is not even a close second to yours, but I'm working on it.

I just wish I knew more of the values of this stuff so I at least had a chance against RKI's like him!!
Keep on bidding, Dave! One of these days I'll beat ya!!

It's neat taking pics of guns. They don't talk back and always sit still...
