      Very interesting photos, though some are repeated ...
      Part of the photo of the Russian-Japanese era, part of the peace time, part of the First World War - the spirit of the era is conveyed ...
      Some photos are simply touching - for example, watching from a ladder for shooting, a machine gun on an artillery carriage ...
      Judging by the appearance of the trenches in the photograph, it is not surprising that there were heavy losses and it was difficult to stay in them during artillery shelling, especially with heavy guns ...
      Good stuff, thanks for the selection!

        Dear Brother Sarych, the first machine guns in the Russian army were on such a gun carriage (this is not at all artillery, but a machine gun carriage). Such machine guns were used in the Russian-Japanese war. Later they were left in service with the fortresses.

          I know about this, only the carriage at the base is still artillery, or rather inherited from the gamblers ...

        Once you have copied the photo you do not need to change the meaning.

        14. Sleeping soldiers are very similar to the dead, this picture is also overtaken by censorship.

      I generally liked the rubric of old photos on an ongoing basis.

      Thanks to the author for the selection, because there are a lot of photographs of the times of the Second World War, but there are much fewer photographs of no less glorious for the Russian Imperial Army during the First World War.

      Boiling water from the engine is cool. Apparently then additives from the scale have not yet been used. The engine is a serious samovar.

      A good selection, perhaps photos and staging, but apparently the army is well equipped.

      Note that the signatures call the war "The Second Patriotic War"

      Yes, I also drew attention - The Second Russian ... Then the liquid Bolsheviks generally began to erase it from the memory of the people ...
