The 30 and a half cm mortar is an inexhaustible subject. The huge bullet, the gigantic gun barrel. The car carriage of the bullet, the lifting device mounted on the gun’s toe. They were all technical elements that made the weapon terrifying. That’s why the citizens and soldiers of the Monarchy trusted it so much. That’s why it was so popular. That’s why it could be used to maintain enthusiasm.
Now I’m uploading a rare wear photo. For some reason, hardly any photos of wearing gunnery badges have been found. It’s not very close shot either, because it’s a full-body picture. So I zoomed in on the jacket pocket with the Kappenabzeichen.
As a bonus an additional post card is also added to this post.
