I Tell You Charlie

War is hell, ain't it?

Wine time

I see they're enjoying a nice cup of wine! Can anyone enlarge the desktop to see what vintage it is? I'd also like to see what the books in the back shelf are (maps, I'd assume).

[All I could make out on the full-sized LOC tiff is part of one line which appears to read "Castiglione." - tterrace]

Camping Gear - Knot

I think I slept in that same tent and cot in Boy Scout camp this past summer! I'm somewhat surprised that the tent ropes have tension/lenthening/shortening "gadgets" rather than use of knots that slide. Then again, this was pre-Baden-Powell.
