Автор @historydigger.ww2 - My Lee- Enfield spike bayonet i found on a trip to Germany in early 2017
A spike bayonet, also known as a pigsticker in informal contexts, is a blade attachment for a firearm taking the form of a pointed spike rather than a knife.
Most early musket bayonets were of this type. From around 1800 knife- or sword-style bayonets began to appear, which could also be wielded by hand. In the early 20th century spike bayonets reappeared, often folding or stowed under the barrel for compactness, such as on the French MAS-36, Chinese SKS and German FG 42. The spike bayonet was also used on the Russian Mosin–Nagant. The Lee–Enfield No.4 bayonet (like the one in my post) or Pig-Sticker, was a short spike and was unpopular due to its length.
Spike bayonets have not been popular with armies since World War II, apart from perhaps China, who attached them to their AK-47 and SKS variants (Type 56 and Type 63), until the introduction of the Type 81 assault rifle, which uses a knife bayonet, in the 1980s. This type of bayonet was the main bayonet used in the American Civil War. ●FOLLOW THE TAGGED!!● #ww2history#ww2#newshabar#historyofww2#history#spike#bayonet#leeenfield#metaldetector#metaldetecting#hobbydetecting#ww2collections#garrettmetaldetectors#garrett#garrettatpropointer#garrettatmax#garrettatpro#worldwar2#hogg#jawbone

🕯This is the Holocaust Museum and memorial in Budapest🌿After working your way through the museum, you come out into this tranquil garden to reflect. The black wall you can see is a list of the people who needlessly perished🕊I knew next to nothing about Hungary’s specific struggles during WWII, and I would encourage anyone who can to go to this exceptional museum 🇭🇺
🇭🇺The Kingdom of Hungary 🇭🇺
The post-WW1 Hungary, with the proud Austro-Hungarian Empire memory still fresh in mind, created an environment favorable for right-wing political parties not unlike that of Germany in the same period. Miklós Horthy, the former Commander-in-Chief of the Austro-Hungarian Imperial Navy who had ruled the nation as the regent since 1920, appointed German-leaning Gyula Gömbös as the Prime Minister in 1932. As it would turn out, the rise of the Nazis in Germany dramatically improved German industrial output and financial health, which also greatly benefited Hungary, which traded with Germany heavily. By 1935, Gömbös had gained strong influence in parliament, but died in Oct 1936 before being able to achieve his goal of forming a single-party government and to repeal the Treaty of Trianon. His successors Kálmán Darányi achieved the latter goal with the support of Adolf Hitler, who by that time had renounced the similar restrictions imposed on Germany at the end of WW1; it was also during Darányi's leadership that the first anti-Semitic policies were passed: The First Jewish Law limited the number of Jews in certain professions. Darányi's successor Béla Imrédy briefly attempted to lean Hungary toward Britain, but he retained a similar right-wing stance; the Second Jewish Law passed under his leadership further restricted the liberties of Jews in Hungary. The Imrédy years also saw the First Vienna Award, in which Hungary gained parts of Southern Slovakia and Carpathian Ruthenia, with a total population of 869,299, with German support; Hitler proposed further cecessions of Czechoslovakian territory to Hungary, but Horthy noted that he would only accept territory populated with Hungarian majority.
No filter needed😍 here is my new belt a little closer with the details❤
History behind the belt:
At first I found this rotten well-used black belt in my granma's attic. I picked it up and went down to granma and asked if I could take this home. My granma told me that the belt belonged to my granpa( who by the way were in the navy under ww2🚢⛵😍) she also said that I could just bring it with me home! So i took it home and just hung it together with my other belts. I had it there for some time and just now I figured out I wanted to fix it😅 I found my old chonchos and some western decorations for belts and bridles and took my millitary knife to cut open the rotten leather. I took a "hole-maker-thing" and made some more straight holes going futher in so it would fit my waist😂 and washed the leather and started working with hammer and knife💪🔨🔪 and in the end I got this result: belt for - pistolholster, archery quivers, for construction workers to keep there pants up😂, pouches, for equestrians riding western or dressage and a lot more...😄

Auschwitz was the first Nazi concentration camp to be established in occupied Poland. On 27 April 1940 SS-Reinchsführer Heinrich Himmler ordered the establishement of a concentration camp in Oswięcim and on 4 May appointed Rudolf Höss its commandant.

Auschwitz was not the first Nazi concentration camp, but it was without doubt the most infamous. Althought the concentration camp system had been in operation for seven years when Auschwitz opened on 14 june 1940, Auschwitz has come to symbolize the atrocities of the Nazi regime.
