1917 Hello Jawbreaker!!!! by Nayikee 1917 Hello Jawbreaker!!!! by Nayikee
Another one of my sketches that I recently found. Really can't recall the time period that this was done.
I think that I did it in the late 80's or early 90's. It portrays the trench fighting that was prevalent during WW1.
I hope that you'll all enjoy this bit of silly nonsense. This sketch is just a comic portrayal and not intended to reflect
my personal opinions pretending to WW1. (Sorry for the stains. This thing is ancient.)Wolf stretched face Part 2 Meh... I don't understand???

The Germans complained about us using shotguns.  Terror weapons they called them.  This from the people that introduced poison gas and the Paris Gun.

Probably pissed off because they didn't come up with the idea first.

German soldiers were issued jagged edged bayonets but quickly
got rid of them. If one was to be taken prisoner in possession of one
of those weapons I can only imagine what his fate would have been.

A friend of mine had one of those.   It was about 2 foot long with 2 way sawteeth on it.  I guess the idea was to use it as a saw, and I am sure it would work, but yes, you did not want to be caught with it.  There have been many strange bayonets as the armies tried to find a use for an otherwise extremely limited weapon.  We had a shovel bayonet, which looked like it sounds.  The French "Rosalie" bayonet would break as the target fell.  (ouch).  Tangent to this, at Guadalcanal a bunch of cavalry sabers were ground down for machetes.  What a souvenir that would be!

Thank you!:) (Smile)
The horrors those men had to endure is unprecedented even to this day.
Whilst stationed in Germany I visited Verdun where the French and German
armies fought each other for over a year. You can still find bone fragments of
men who where literally blown to bits.:( (Sad)
(Sorry for such a late reply.)

It's crazy to think that that was 100-years-ago.

And that the landscape of Belgium and France still bear the
scars of that conflict.

Some parts of the uniforms seem historically inaccurate ^^:

I sketched the uniforms from memory.
It was never my intention to accurately portray the uniforms in a historical sense.
For example: The PICKLE HAUBE, (German spiked helmet) was replaced by the stalhelm 
after 1916. Call it artistic license.
