1916 Popular Science Monthly wartime magazine


Recommended Posts

:D Page 587. "A single meal for one of our big guns." Illustration show an army sergeant standing alongside the shell that weighes 2,900 pounds and six large cloth covered bags of smokeless powder; the fourth bad reaches the soldier's height! Wouldn't you like to have a deactivated shell like this in your living room for a WW1 display too? :D Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California (hhbooker2@yahoo.com)

:rolleyes: March 1918 (Page 1) cover art showing two airmen in a bi-plane with one of them shooting balloons with a shotgun. Story starts on page 353 of this WW1 magazine. "Aerial Chase is Sport Royal for Clubmen," no doubt they'd assigned to the U.S. Army Air Service or the Royal Air Force. Unfortunately part of the front cover is chewed away or just rotted away in the past 91 years? Many of these old "Popular Mechanics Magazines" and "Popular Science Monthlys" are missing front and back covers.

;) Page 18. Advertisement for truck drivers and truck mechanics show driving military vehicles, perhaps they were called up for service upon completion of their training and sent overseas to France and the Western Front?
