Bombs away at WWII weekend, Reading,PA,2013

Enjoy ammo highlights at MAAM WWII weekend

I always forget about that and miss it!

  1. I find the little “Hitler Youth” a bit disturbing.
  2. How does that Israeli 52mm mortar round fit in?
  3. I hope I’m still alive to see that P-61 fly, that will be a true life high-light.

One of the reenactors pointed at the mortar production date (1975) and said: “Can you imagine, they used it as late as that”. I know close to nothing about mortars. He seemed to imply that it was a copy of a WWII time mortar.

Maybe even after '75. We used them in the IDF in the mid to late '80s, mainly for illuminations and simulation.
