Sweetheart Grips

**Sweetheart Grips** [version française plus bas]

Our forthcoming album is called ”Sweetheart Grips”: have you heard of this practice before?

During WWII, soldiers were known to take precious family photos (and Pinup Girl photos) and put them under clear grips on their 1911 pistols – called Sweetheart Grips. Many of the grips were made from pieces of broken plastic windows from bombers.

The funds raised from the sales of this album will be given to the association “Save the children”:

Guests to be announced.

**Sweetheart Grips**

Notre prochain album s’appelle “Sweetheart Grips”: avez-vous déjà entendu parler de cette pratique?

Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, il était commun que les soldats prennent de précieuses photos de famille (et de Pinup Girl) et les mettent sous la crosse de leurs pistolets M1911, appelées Sweetheart Grips. La plupart des crosses étaient fabriquées à partir de morceaux de fenêtres en plastique brisées par des bombardiers.

Les fonds récoltés lors de la vente de cet album seront reversés à l’association “Save the children”:

Guests annoncés prochainement.
