Not My Victrola: Edison Army-Navy Phonograph

Just in time for Armistice/Veterans' Day, VictrolaMan has cranked up his Great War vintage Edison. These were made to entertain our soldiers in France, and this one is one of the few that came back to the states after the war. It's a very rare glimpse into the past, and my only complaint is that VictrolaMan should have played a tune from 1917 or 1918.

In order to enhance your enjoyment of this musical treasure, you should soak your feet in a muddy trench for several days, have a case of cooties, munch a Red Cross doughnut, and wash it down with coffee from an aluminum canteen cup.  God Bless Our Vets.

Well, I passed on the cooties, but got pretty close on the rest! Thanks, this was a good one for 11/11.
