Oh, is it open mic night for the war relic guru? Well then, I've got a
WWI M1917 rifle which I inherited from my grandpa, much like the one
pictured here[1]. I've read a bit about them in general but would like
to learn more about my rifle in particular, i.e. who carried it (not my
grandpa as he was still in diapers), where, when, etc. Any thoughts on
whether information like that exists and if so where it might be had?
