"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…"
"Very, good Tom. Thank you so much for getting the SLP figured out. This is great though, at least now I have the town name n battle that took place. Im gonna email the antique arms dealer here in town right now."
"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'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…"

"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…"
"Why are you barking at me? It was Jeff Guy who incorrectly corrected me by misusing the word ordinance. He did it twice (2 typos I guess). You didn't use the word that I could see.
The fellow who wrote the message used the word…"
"Its called a typo Tom. It happens. Get over it.Move on. Let it go.......why do you feel the need to show that you are superior to everyone by putting them on blast for every little mistake they make? ok, so i didnt put the apostrophe or I…"
"Why do you feel the need to correct or nitpick every single post every single person puts up. No , my facts are not incorrect Tom. Gen. Pershing led a force of 12,000 into Mexico. They were not Mexican troops.President Carranza of Mexico was not…"
