New album “Sweetheart Grips” Cover

Our new 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.

Notre nouvel album s’appelle: “Sweetheart Grips”: avez-vous déjà entendu parler de cette pratique? Pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, les soldats prenaient de précieuses photos de famille (et de Pinup Girl) et les mettaient sous la crosse de leurs pistolets 1911, appelées Sweetheart Grips. La plupart des poignées étaient fabriquées à partir de morceaux de fenêtres en plastique brisées par des bombardiers.
