This actually seems to capture what the army wanted to see in the Second World War. Planes overhead!

I don't know that I'd ever seen a Canadian Archer etc. I thought the Cdns just had 17-pounders and M10s or Achilles.

Hopefully I won't need it after next week. I've had to move it to the top of my priority list!

Don't you love it when you check a book out of your local university library (due in the spring) and later that evening you get an email saying the book has been recalled and is now due in one week's time?

But then my tendancy for procrastination will get the better of my personal history projects!

At this rate I'm going to need to invest in just about every streaming service.

Just getting off the beach on 6 June could be tricky. But one mustn't forget that the campaign was won, and the majority of casualties suffered, over the next two months. Inland.

Indeed. I was thinking in terms of numbers involved. With Normandy you had the RCN operating landing craft/ships and as part of beach parties etc., not to mention the warships in the Channel.

Normandy and the English Channel would be my hypothesis. Though the RCN stretched itself pretty thin in 1942 to make a lot of things work.

Do you include the St Lawrence in that? St. Law, eastern US coast, Caribbean, cover for Operation Torch, Arctic convoys, and D-Day and the English Channel all big deals.
