Women war workers assembling the stamped parts of MKII STEN sub machine guns together. The STEN was made from stamped metal and was a very simple, fairly reliable sub machine gun which could be mass produced easily. The STEN was developed in 1941 it remained in service in various incarnations until the 1960s. They could be temperamental and unreliable at times but became more reliable with later versions

A French creative going by the name of Blick has created a series of inspiring collages that juxtapose black and white photos of men at war with vivid #flower drawings and cartoonish details. In the series, the soldiers’ guns have been replaced with flowers, making them look friendly and harmless. They now bring peace instead of war, shooting petals instead of bullets

Devil Anse Hatfield was in his 40's when his brother Ellison was fatally shot and stabbed by three McCoys of Kentucky. The shooting touched off a backwoods family feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia led by Devil Anse (officially William Anderson,) and the McCoys. The feud raged from 1882 to 1888; estimates of deaths range from 27 to 100. This is a photograph of Devil Anse, of unknown date. (AP Photo)

Mousetrap. (childhood memory)
Mouse Trap - Board game published by Ideal in 1963 (2 to 4 players). Players at first cooperate to build a working Rube Goldberg-like mouse trap. Once built, players turn against each other, attempting to trap opponents' mouse-shaped game pieces. Loved playing my cousins' game! - (vintage lady, 1960s, toys)
1960's mousetrap game - Loved playing this game!! Played it with my friends, and sometimes my sisters (when I could talk them into playing with their baby sister)
Mouse Trap .. never played the game.. just set up the stuff then made it trap the mice!
Mousetrap. It was a blast!
Mousetrap game. Had to have the game but I don't think we actually "played" it...played with the mouse, ball and trap? That we did.

She racked up at least 54 kills of German soldiers before her death from wounds at age 20. She served part of the time in an all-woman sniper unit. Before the war she worked as a kindergarten teacher.

The ladies proved as valiant as any soldier. It is estimated 2,000 to 8,000 women volunteered on both sides. The actual number is unknown, for many did not wish to be recorded. They worked for little or no pay. With no credentials, other than a compassionate heart, the volunteers assisted doctors, tried to keep the hospital clean, cared for the sick, and kept up the spirits of their patients. How many soldiers would have died, being too sick to get up to get food or water for themselves, or too
