Thanks for the link, Harry. I always think of the cooperation among the Allies to fight the war on two fronts.
If you watch the films of D-Day, there is one part that holds my interest. My cousin, Johnny Trubiski, was a sniper; went in the first wave. There is a segment of four GIs carrying a stretcher with a GI on it. The GI is up on one elbow, facing the camera. The GI also has a pencil-thin mustache. My father always claimed that was my cousin, his nephew. Dad said Johnny could stand off 50 paces and drive thumbtacks with a .22 rifle.
BTW, some of the photos have been around a while, not just a recent release.
G'day, mate!

Thanks Harry,

My father was in the Dieppe Raid and was taken POW for 3 years. He was marked for life.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
