Thank you. I didn't know that. A connection between conkers and the creation of the State of Israel. smiley - smiley

Sometimes history turns on the tiniest things, doesn't it?

Fairly big thing, i would think. Cordite fires bullets. Real gunpowder (black powder) hasn't been used for over a hundred years except by the muzzle loading enthusiasts. Without cordite, they would have had to rely on really sharp sticks to win the war.


Still, I agree, a very interesting entry. Excellent.

An excellent piece. It's a shame a huge worldwide game of conkers wasn't held instead of six years of warfare! Although I'm sure someone would have cheated and baked theirs in vinegar or somesuch old schoolboy method..


This is amazing!
