Best Answer

The Southern representative in England was James Mason.


James Dunwoody Bulloch was the Confederate purchasing agent in Great Britain. He stationed in Liverpool as an agent for Fraser, Trenholm and Co.

When the Civil War broke out, he offered his services to the Confederate Government as a procurement agent in Great Britain.

Covered by his official activity, he bought and sold Confederate cotton for British textile industries. He employed the hard currency realized buying all kinds of badly needed war materials and then shipping them on British osten- sibly neutral ships or other carriers ready to run the blockade.

Furthermore he managed, as "man behind" to buy steamships, which were then converted into warships and employed for preying purposes against the US merchant fleet.

What is freighter aircraft?

A "freighter" aircraft is any plane designed to carry cargo rather than passengers. You can generally recognize a freight aircraft by the presence of double doors allowing a pallet of cargo to be loaded with a forklift. Most civilian airliners are available in a freight configuration, such as the Boeing 747 and Lockheed L-1011. The military generally purchases specially designed aircraft with loading ramps such as the C-130 Hercules or the C-5A Galaxy.

In World War 2 what was the L85 fashion directive?

You have been waiting for an answer on this for a while. I decided I would try to answer you. I researched where I could and near as I understand the L85 directive in World War 2 in the United States was a directive that said people had to ration their clothing and cloth purchases because the US needed the fabric from the mills for making uniforms, packs, etc. Nylons were donated to make coverings for powder magazines for the big guns and other things. There was also a leather and rubber ration put into place with that directive so the service men could have boots and other leather products. I found an article in encyclopedia com but it was only half an article.

Can you buy an mg42?

I'm not an expert on any of these laws but after doing extensive "Google" work trying to find the answer to this question I have found that although difficult to find, yes you can legally purchase an MG42. The difficulty of finding one of these magnificent weapons also multiplies depending on what aspect of the firemarm you are going for. If you just think its a cool gun, and want to put a few rounds down range, then it shouldn't bee too difficult to locate a seller of a replica weapon. Finding a fully automatic version will again be much more difficult requiring various permits and understanding of your local laws. However, the hardest of all purchases is for the WWII buff who is purchasing the weapon for its historical meaning. Not only are there VERY few original MG42s in private ownership, but finding an owner who would sell his prized piece could be just about impossible. In conclusion, while this firearm is certainly not the easiest to obtain, it can be done, and in my opinion (as im sure many others feel as well) well worth the effort and cost.
