Hi, I'm an archaeologist based in Orkney, Scotland, and I'm doing some research into the form and features associated with machine gun pits. I came across this photo on your site:

2RAR troops manning a Bren Mark III in Hill 159 gun pit.
(Also note their beloved Owen 9mm Machine Carbine)

and the form of it looks very similar to a machine gun pit that we have excavated in Shetland. It consisted of an 11m long trench on top of a natural mound overlooking the sea, with a probable crawl trench on the landward side of it. A military historian / archaeologist stated that it was probably a Bren or Lewis gun position, probably for air and sea defence. Do you have any more information on machine gun pits at all?

I am a Viet Nam Veteran and I just wanted to drop a line to say "Thanks" to all of my Brothers-in-Arms from previous conflicts for the patriotism they showed by stepping up to the plate when our country called. I am humbled to even be considered to be a part of the heritage passed on by all of you. May God protect and bless you all.

As an old Air Force guy I feel a little out of place here. It's been 60 years since I was affiliated with the 8th Fighter Bomber Wing at K-13 near Suwon. Our unit consisted of F-80 Shooting Stars that provided ground support for front line combat operations. My job was to repair structural damage caused by extreme maneuvering and over loading of munitions.

Admin reply: Hi Wayne, thanks for your remembrance. You are exactly right at home here, we all went where they sent us, and did whatever job they gave us, as best as we could. That's what I did. That's what you did. Have a great Christmas, brother.
