Thanks to Hisname for more photos,

Winston Churchill with the Mauser C96:

I remember reading from his memories, the Mauser C96 saved his life, at least one time...
Don't have the passage from his memoirs at hand, but Sir Winston has written about the Mauser Pistol earlier...

Good morning,

thanks for more interesting photos, and for mentioning the 1972 movie "Young Winston".

Wikipedia (E): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Winston

It's been a long time since I have seen the film once, probably on German television, I liked the film very much,
and would like to find a copy on DVD...

Here just one of the many internet pages about Churchill and the Mauser C96 pistol, quite interesting to read.

P.S. Interesting the above historic photo from the DWM production-line, I never saw this before.
