Mt. DAAO(大澳山), MY MOST MEMORY AT BEIGAN ISLAND

(at Mt. Daoo in 1989, with my Type 57 rifle
which a Taiwan made M-14)
(where the observation post No.113 was, now there is nothing)
(the company commanding post)
(one of our strongholds, the stronghold No.06)
(stronghold No. 08, now is a weaponry park)
During my 2 year military life, I spent more than one year at observation post No.113 at Mt. Daao (大沃山). My job was to watch the sea, and gave commend to strongholds to fire .50 machine guns at any boats which were closed to our guarding areas, no matter during day time and night time.
After checking at the hostel, I went to Mt. Daao directly to find the place where I lived before. Surprisingly, the whole Mt. Daao now became The Peace Memorial Park. Army only keeps few strongholds, then abandoned others; stronghold No.08 now is a weapon park, stronghold No. 06 and No.12 are fully opened to tourists. And for the observation post No. 113, it is totally no longer there.
Time did changed almost everything! Once young people left home and took a long journey to this island, defended it with their life and blood. But now all we have done seems a joke...
Anyway, that is life! that is the way how people grow up.

請問這把57式步槍的瞄準鏡倍率是多少?

現在看來的確有趣,近20年前國軍就"理論上"有將57步槍作為班狙擊槍(因為"理論上"狙擊鏡是配給班長)使用。其實M-14(57式)在機匣左側都留有瞄準鏡座的固定孔,每一把都可以裝置瞄準鏡。

照片中的瞄準鏡是美國Colt生產的3倍瞄準鏡,是固定在瞄準鏡座上,不可拆的。其實這支瞄準鏡就是常看到裝在M-16上的那隻。

那時候連上好像有13具吧,而且都沒帳...可惜當時膽子小,要不然現在就可以裝在我的M-14上了。

千萬別小看57呀!!射程遠,準頭高,
像我們飛彈部隊最怕被敵機轟掉,雖然營區旁邊都有高砲部隊保護,但我們還是要練習如何用步槍射飛機咧!!依稀記得訓練中有針對不同敵機機種的飛行高度與速度採取不同的前置量,正副哨兵一蹲一立,採三點發對空射擊,對了,57步槍還可發射槍榴彈喔!!

對了,我當年連上也有好幾把沒帳的刺刀,
可惜沒幹出來,只幹了指揮官的美軍防寒大衣,將官在穿的喔!!!
