Ever been interested in 1940s men's fashion? It's real cool! During the war men wore simple solid coloured suits of navy and black with simple, plain white shirts with little to no "embellishments". The zoot suit was more work by Mexican and African Americans; it featured high-waisted, bagging low-crocheted pants with an oversized jacket. However, some men chose to wear a simple suit that showed off a little style with additional clothing. Ties were very important, and since pants were high-waisted, ties were short and wide, and of course, they were brightly coloured to add an attractive flare. Ties were hardly held by pins, and instead, were held by clips. Shirts were paired with cufflinks along with suspenders that doubled as a belt. The hat was also important, and when not wearing a military cap, men were seen sporting a wide-brimmed fedora. During the war, meaning WWII, clothing items and materials were rationed-- let's not forget that! Along with that, during the war, someone who wore clothing that was more flashy was seen as an unpatriotic citizen, as materials went to the military for uniforms, which is why, for example, leather belts fell out and suspenders came in. Natural fibres were also taken from using for everyday clothes, again for the purpose of uniforms. Because of the war, many to all suits lost additions such as the vest and pocket flaps. -

From 1908–a time when firearms truly were works of art. This St. Étienne Mle. 1892 is solid, finely machined, and tight. You won’t find any plastic or polymers anywhere on this old girl. In fact, the only plastic you’ll find in my cabinet is in some early pistol grips. #wwii #ww2 #ww2history #history #guns #military #militaryhistory #gunsofinstagram #pistol #stétienne #mle1892 #france #armeedeterre #arméedeterre #army #militaryart #classic #gunophilia .

---------------------------

Australia soldiers of the 9th Field Battery, 3rd Field Artillery Brigade, 1st Division, man the Number 4 18-pounder field gun at M'Cay's Hill in Gallipoli on the 19th of May in 1915.
The Gallipoli campaign of the First World War was the brain child of Winston Churchill who at the time was First Lord of the Admiralty. His plan was to first bring in a large naval fleet to bombard the Dardanelles and forts in the area into submission which would open a supply route to Russia. However, his plan did not work and a naval invasion was prepared for the 25th of April in 1915 to capture the Gallipoli peninsula. When the French, British and ANZAC forces first landed they suffered heavy losses from Turkish machine gun fire and strong barbed wire emplacements. The Allied forces made only minor gains and many of their objectives for the first day would not be achieved in the 7 months they were there. Trench warfare would quickly develop, as had with most other fronts, and with Allied casualties soaring an evacuation was ordered.
Interestingly, out of all the Gallipoli campaign the most successful moment was the Allied evacuation... Casualties:

Allied: 302, 000

Turkish: 250, 000

This outfit will require a very specific occasion but I'd wear it every day if I could. It's a reproduction World War Two nurse uniform.
