In 1995, I started collecting these mostly German WW1 photos, others of mine and some on/off the internet. So to share them and for educational purposes I made these 3 slide shows of these rare photos; AT EACH END OF THE RIFLE, WE'RE THE SAME #1 #2 #3. To show that we are all, really part of the “Same Human Race” at the any end, of any rifle.
I hope that you find these interesting:

“Oh my name is Francis Tolliver, from Liverpool I dwell
Each Christmas comes since World War I have learned its lesson well.
For the one who calls the shots won't be among the dead and lame.
And on each end of the rifle we're the same”

Buon Natale!
Fröhliche Weihnachten!
Joyeux Noël!
С Рождеством!

Oh what a lovely war! Christmas Truce:

War really is a vast open air factory where the hours are long, unions are not permitted, safety conditions that are routinely flouted and people’s lives wasted for at times neither Good or Bad! No more people have died on this planet then they would have died, if they were not killed in a War. Only future potential of all these individuals were lost!

World War One in my opinion started in 1914 but with brief pauses here and there, The European War ended after the fall of the Berlin Wall 1989. Then in 1990 – 1991 we started our Middle Eastern Wars proper, for after all the Middle East problem started at the end of the Ottoman Empire on the 1st November 1922.
