    Why are there two Canadian flags in these pictures?

    comment-bottom
  14. avatar comment-top

    Dick,

    The Canadian flags are because a large number of the photos are of Juno beach and other areas, taken by Canadian troops on D-Day and afterwards. Many of the troop photos in the 1944 photos are Canadian as well.

    comment-bottom
  15. avatar comment-top

    There’s two Canadian flags because Juno beach was a Canadian military operation on D-Day. Utah/Omaha were the American ones and Sword/Gold were the British ones.

    Omaha tends to get most of the attention due to high casualties and Saving Private Ryan, although Juno had similarly high casualty rates.

    When something is destroyed in the states by an event like the 1905 fire in Baltimore, we build a new building. Sometimes we destroy a building after a few years to put up a new one. In Europe, they rebuild the old building. I remember being in Warsaw, and learning that, after World War II, the Poles looked to paintings of Warsaw from hundreds of years ago to rebuild it just the way it was before the Nazis destroyed the city. Quite a different attitude.

    An impressive example of forced urban renewal. Maybe we should try the same technique on most islamist countries.

    To paraphrase Ann Coulter “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert the survivors to Christianity”.

    On the other hand I say kill the islamists as they are a threat to our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Kill their livestock. Burn their houses and salt their land.

    I have a friend who parachuted into St. Mer Eglise in the early morning of D-Day with the 82nd Airborne. He said that there was so much confusion and guys were scattered all over the place that men from the 82nd and 101st were just joining up with whoever they could find to form combat units and get on with their mission to try to secure the area against German reinforcements.

    He was eager to see these pictures. He had just returned from a visit to Normandy to see a Frenchman he go to know after the war.

    Have just come back from a wonderful holiday to Pattaya, stayed at Palm Beach Inn in the northwestern part which is less hetic than southeastern areas, superior hotel and awesome bays near Pattaya like at Koh Larn. We hired a cycle for only 450 baht per day and would drive around the entire region. So many marvelous localises to dine, our cherished restaurant was Sweet n Spicy which had the most wonderful view over the beach, the staff was quite friendly and the food so yummy, we would go for sunrise cocktails. My wife and I had a brilliant time in Pattaya City and will be back for Easter.

    I just returned from the Normandy coast – stayed in Courseulles-sur-mer – the center of Juno Beach. It is such a beautiful place. It is hard to imagine the death and destruction that happened on that beach – now so silent and pleasant. Visited the American Cemetery, Point du Hoc, and, of course, Omaha Beach. Our reception throughout Normandy was wonderful – I am planning a return trip and highly recommend it to anyone who plans to travel.

    I have been to a number of those places and really enjoy the “then and now” photos. One additional aspect is the fact that the French have posted markers where American (and presumably Canadian and British) soldiers were killed near the beaches with the name and date. It’s nice to see the remembrance. Many of the casualties were engineers, probably clearing mines.

    GREAT web page and photos. What an ordeal cleaning up the mess in WW2. Glad we are all allies here. Together we did it. FTG.
