I typically run a 16" Western Electric fan to keep cool, one that has gained the reputation on TeamSpeak as being the "Stuka Fan", apparently due to it's sound resembling that of a dive bomber roaring at you with the throttle maxed (I don't think it's that loud, but microphones can do some weird things).

Unfortunately for the soldiers on the battlefield, the stuka fan needs 110v AC to operate.

 

So how did they get around this problem?

 

 

 

 

 

With fire of course!

While they may not pump out a whirlwind of air, it provided some comfort in the hot battlefields of the middle east, as well as many tropical territories postwar. I had found a neat story from a Great War soldier about one the other day, but was unable to find it again to post it here unfortunately, here is an ad instead  :icon_e_smile:

I thought it was a neat novelty and wanted to share it here. I don't know how hot it gets where some of you guys are, but here in the deserts of California I need all the fans I can get! :icon_e_salute:

Is that Stirling fan an antique or one of the newer ones?
