Mortar, 2 In Mk Vii* Airborne Featured 15 May 2014 Print

Mortar, 2 In Mk Vii* Airborne

Mk VII* 2 in mortar. Used by airborne forces during World War Two, 1945 (c). The 2 inch Mortar, introduced into service in 1938, was a light weapon designed for close support fire for infantry. Originally equipped with a base-plate and sights, it was modified during the war to a very simplified form. This model, produced in 1944 for use by airborne troops, is simply a metal tube with the sighting reduced to a white line on the barrel. The High Explosive or Smoke bomb is dropped down the barrel and fired by a simple lever. The maximum range is 430 metres (500 yards). Date: circa 1945

Crypsis in moth looper caterpillar Featured 15 May 2014 Print

Crypsis in moth looper caterpillar

This weird little critter was seen at night on the Malaysian island of Langkawi. It moved much more like a leech than a caterpillar, planting its posterior on the ground using its prolegs and then waving its entire upper body in the air before planting just the extreme anterior of its body and repeating the movement. When disturbed, it immediately assumed this posture - which looks much like a bud from a branch
