"Battles at El Ebano took place in 1915, not 1914 as I said earlier. Wiki shows 3 major engagements: In January 1915, Treviño again held off a force of Villistas commanded by General Manuel Chao. Treviño is credited with constructing…"

"I've looked at many German  fuses and ALL OF THEM have letters or names identifying the age and size of the weapon. I did learn  that those two rings are called Percusion rings and are calibrated in seconds (or the metric equivalent…"

"I just noticed that the Turkish fuses are written in Farsi, not English.  The threading on yours seems to be finer than the Austro-Hungarian fuses.  Will keep looking."

"I've been trying to find "EAMONS SIP" shown in the message on the board. The only possible explanation is that the writer couldn't spell or else it was misinterpreted, or both.  The following battle took place in 1913 at…"

"Here's an informative link.  Check out the Turkish pictures; says they got them from Krupp. That would be Krupp Arms Manufacturing, Germany.  If you have the fuse, you might measure the widest part  in millimeters to determine…"

"Ok, here is an update: I have located a CF Kendall II in Houston. I am waiting on a call back from him. Im almost 100% positive this is either his son or grandson . Im going to go look on ancestry.com to trace his family tree and see if there is any…"

"Jeff, I thought that you spelled it that way to spoof me, since your post came right after mine. I use Mozilla-Firefox which inserts a red line under misspelled words and a yellow line under improper grammar. I rarely misspell words, but if I do you…"

Jeff Guy replied to GENE SCOTT CAFFEY's discussion Pancho Villa War Artifact in the group Whadja Find Today
"I think it's pretty clear that Gene knows a lot about this history, and probably a lot more than either of us do about old "ordnance". And just look at the battles taking place in Iraq and Syria. American weapons are in the hands of…"

"Geez, Tom, I wasn't correcting your use of the word, I was simply using the word. Since everyone knew what I was talking about, I don't think misspelling it was a big deal, and agree with Gene that there is no value in correcting it.…"

"Usually when somebody errs and is corrected they go on the defensive by changing their story or name calling. Think about this: Who (Villa, Carranza, or Pershing) would most likely be using British equipment on the battlefield?  Villa…"
