  • Hope has landed

    Hello boys !

    Just a quick word to say that 72 years ago, your cohalition had given hope back to my ancestors.
    Your fallen ones are not forgotten,be sure of that.
    Souvenir is more and more teached at school and the interest for the sacrifice of your boys is growing up .

    Thank you once again

    You may not be interested in War, but War is interested in You - Leon Trotski, June 1919.

        To honor and pay respect to the fallen on this anniversary of D-day is always a good thing. Thanks for the thread Seb and keep the photo's coming. I see that Major Sennef also has a beautiful woman as his avatar. It must be catching on. Why have I never saw Brigitte Bardot yet ?? After all she was quite stunning back in the day.

                  She was! Feel free to change!

                  While out in the desert serving in a shooting war I didn't think so much of (heroic pictures of) soldiers or military hardware, but rather of women, and drinks
                  That is one of the reasons for my choice of avatar.

                      Some cartoon reminders:



                      And the classic

                      Will no one tell me what she sings?--
                      Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
                      For old, unhappy, far-off things,
                      And battles long ago:
                      -William Wordsworth, "The Solitary Reaper"
