With this issue, our Senior Editor Robert Segel moves on into semi-retirement. For 11 years, he’s devoted a huge amount of time and energy to helping both Small Arms Review and Small Arms Defense Journal stay on track and become what they are today. We’re grateful for all of the work that he’s done, and he will be missed. Fortunately for the readers, Robert will be continuing his column “Emmageeman’s Corner: Machine Gun Memorabilia” and writing historical articles for us. Robert traveled the world with SAR and was in on many adventures from England’s hidden historical museums, to live firing machine guns in Serbia, to Southeast Asian military shows. His unique, lifelong search for knowledge about machine guns and specifically his work with the Golden Age (1870-1922) of these weapons has impacted the knowledge of all of us in the small arms community. He has plans to work on books regarding his memorabilia collections, and early machine guns, and we look forward to those as well.
