It should be a great day out in Birmingham!!!
A contradictory statement, surely?!
Seriously though i'm looking forward to (hopefully) attending the conference and watching 'Tell England' again. The fact that the men landing at Gallipoli genuinely did think the Turkish had machine guns, and in a sizeable number, is surely testament to the great skill of the defenders. The (myth?) of Germans thinking the British had more machine guns than they actually did at Mons being reversed less than a year later is rather ironic too
