February 16, 1918 was the date that Lithuania declared the right to exist as an independent nation. To commemorate that event, the Lithuanian Riflemen’s Union (Šauliai) published a series of special annual supplements to their weekly magazine “Trimitas”, (first published 1920-1940 in Kaunas). The supplement was called “Vasario 16”. Our examples are from 1931 and 1932.
