Hiroshima is devastated by the atomic bomb Little Man in 1945. 140,000 killed, the plight of those who survived was even worse, many suffering from the radioactive fallout. This was a war crime in any way you see it.

Just in case it slipped anyone's mind today: THEY ALL KNEW!! None of them have any regard for human life! They are deranged & corrupted criminals! They are all, individually & collectively, responsible!

80 years ago today during the Battle of Britain was Aldertag (Eagle Day). The day the Germans set out to destroy the RAF. Also known as the Hardest Day. The haunting image of Sandy Lane speaks a thousand words.

Dakota ZA947 was out in the sunshine today, which was lovely to see. Dakotas were used extensively by the Allies in WWII and remained in frontline service for many years after.

Whilst I had a fantastic day with , it’s important to remember over 55,000 Bomber Crewmen were killed during WW2 which was almost a 50% mortality rate. A debt of gratitude owed by a nation and Commonwealth that can never be repaid. 🌺
