Grim anniversaries
1 month ago

On the day I took this photo last week the news mentioned that the last living crewmember onboard Enola Gay had died aged 92, he was the navigator. Today is the anniversary of the Hiroshima bomb.

World War 1 anniversary is this week. On tv and radio many programmes. It was the 60-year anniversary of D-Day this year. Again, many programmes. Military personnel were hauled out of their current lives to remember.

That caused a split. Some were so overwhelmed by memories of fallen comrades they were in stress, in contrast a man performed a Great Escape in reverse. He was reported as missing from his retirement home in UK and found in Normandy, France.
