Good day everyone)
I have been doing Weapon History as a hobby for a long time. And I have accumulated a sufficient number of documentary historical photos with Mosin-Nagant rifles.
I decided to share with you the most interesting photos in my opinion. And I will slowly upload photos. I collected these photos on various forums and I want to apologize if you have already seen these photos. The photos are stored with me without sorting, and I will upload them in alphabetical order, as they are stored on my computer.
In general, let's start))

208-й пехотный Лорийский полк
208th Lori Infantry Regiment

The regiment got its name because of its geographical location. Lori is a region in Armenia.
Photo taken on October 29, 1914.

But I have kept some photos for more than 5 years and it is difficult for me to remember their history.
