Vintage Esso ~ at night, at my Papaw's... I used to sleep with my pillow in the open window because there was an Esso station across the river that was open late at night, and I could see and hear them... especially the "ding, ding" when a car would come in and run over the hose across their driveway.
Great War Weapons. Grandfather would have used a rifle. His army record describes him as 'a good shot'. Would he have used any other weapons or have needed his gas mask? We'll likely never know. He told a story about soldiers covering their faces with urine-soaked kilts to protect themselves during gas attacks; perhaps the only benefit of wearing kilts.
