During WWII, soldiers were known to take precious family photos (and Pinup Girl photos) and put them under clear grips on their 1911 pistols - called Sweetheart Grips. Many of the grips were made from pieces of broken plastic windows from bombers.

During World War II the Colt M1911A1 was the standard sidearm of the US military, arming American soldiers across Europe, North Africa, and the Pacfic. One common practice among GI’s was to modify their pistols by replacing their grips with so called “sweetheart grips”.

Terrified German soldier. Our portrayal of war and the men on either side of it sucks...
This photo of a young German boy soldier crying in fear while being yelled at by an officer during World War II is an example of a visual cue. Crying is a strong visual cue that captures the attention of the receiver letting them know something is wrong or needs attention. http://www.webmd.com/balance/features/why-we-cry-the-truth-about-tearing-up
CAVEAT: This is NOT a wartime photo. It is a frame from the 1959 German movie DIE BRÜCKE (THE BRIDGE). It is frequently pinned as "Young German soldier crying" or the like.
Real face of war
Its the human side of history that matters to me

A woman knits in the London underground next to a Ministry of Information propaganda poster designed to bolster morale during the time that Britain was threatened by German invasion. The MoI designed another (now famous) poster of this same series in 1939, reading "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON", to be used if Germans attempted invasion of the British mainland. It was never used.

Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 50s when vinyl was scarce people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole.
