Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Interesting site, showing different types of grenades and riflegrenades for the various armies which fought in battles from the US Civil War through WWI and WWII.

Ej's Ordnance Show & Tell Pages

A Varied and Detailed Display of Collectable Military Ordnance
with Technical and Historical Commentary

I have the pleasure of being a member of a small, but knowledgeable, militaria collectors organization and one of the more popular activities we do is "Show and Tell" night. The way this works is, a particular theme is announced, members bring related items from their collections, then are provided an opportunity to stand and give a short presentation to the group.
These web pages are an extension of this idea.

Passing knowledge on to others is an interesting experience. Aside from possibly inspiring the listener, it also helps the "teacher". Questions from the audience often are a challenge to one's understanding of the material. I have found the effort to present a subject to a group (or to create a written document) enhances one's own perspective of the subject and is a motivation to continue learning.

Seems a pity to collect this stuff and just leave it sit, removed from public view. Some keep their treasures tucked away, holding those hard won nuggets of history guarded and close. Others make the effort to bring their collections to the public, at shows and exhibitions, in order to share what they have learned and help preserve the history. I have elected to use the Internet to emulate the latter.

I hope you enjoy my humble display. Please feel free to correct, comment and ask questions, as that is what it's all about!

Thanks to Rocking Harry for sharing!
