On Photographer revisits images of Vietnam War news story (89 comments in total)

These stunning images are going force me to look back at mine from 68-69 (Chu Lai)! Like this photographer, my slides have been locked away for over forty years. I can't even imagine that they would even come close to these.

On Battle of Britain challenge (18 comments in total)

All the pics were excellent although Private Custard was right. The winning photo is of a Hurricane Mk XII manufactured in Canada in 1942 and appears it never left Canada while it was in service. It was later restored to resemble a MKIIa and is now stored in England.

On Battle of Britain challenge (18 comments in total)

Because after 72-73 years there are so few remnants of the battle left, this is a difficult challenge. If I could post more than one image, I would post the companion to my spitfire pic, a Junkers JU-87 Stuka. It is one of only two intact Stukas left in existence. They fought in the early part of the Battle but had to be withdrawn due to heavy casualties. A few years back it was taken down from the Museum of Science and Industry and restored by the EAA folks in Oshkosh, Wi. I believe there were 6,500 Stukas built and its hard to believe only two intact remain!

I am sorry to say that the Japanese "Kate did not participate in the Battle of Britain nor the Avro Lancaster. The Lancaster did not become operational until 1942.

On against the odds in the Battle of Britain challenge (1 comment in total)

That's a Japanese "Kate". I can only assume this is a re-enactment of Pearl Harbor and not the Battle of Britain.

Just for information the Focke Wulf fw 190 never fought in the Battle of Britain and wasn't operational until August, 1941, ten months after the battle ended. I have no problems with it remaining in the challenge because I like to see it. Just so we get the facts right. The most numerous fighters were the Hurricane and the Bf-109. The Spitfire became the most famous, however the Hurricane was the backbone of the RAF at that time.
