Not much I can add. A solemn day in the end. Day to reflect, a day to give thanks — that we are speaking English rather than German.

Please check ALL the ‘D-Day‘ and ‘Red Poppy‘ posts on this blog. The search box is on the sidebar. In those days I covered much.

Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!

This is a magnificent piece of art in it own right, even if you put aside the subject matter. The portraits of the five Allied Commanders are special; portraits Dick Bobnick’s forte.

You really must check this painting out. The detail is incredible.

Nice, easy to follow guide. Just note that the times are LOCAL. So, 5-6 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern.

Remember ‘D-Day 75‘ is June 6, 2019, not June 5. Huge day. You have to pause and give it some thought. Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!

This are at least 16 (yes, sixteen) D-Day specific posts on this blog, not counting all those on ‘Churchill‘ and the ‘RAF‘. So, please check them out. They all contain painstakingly researched images or videos. You will be amply rewarded.

I am a great admirer of D-Day.

I always pause to reflect on this day, June 6, 1944 — 9-years ahead of my birth.

D-Day, of course, changed the course of history — of course, for the better.

Yes, this being the 75th anniversary we will, quite rightly, see lots of gusto, pomp and ceremony. I wish we would celebrate it with similar vigor each and every year.

I was in London for the 50th anniversary. That was quite an occasion.

If NOT for the Allied heroics of this day we will NOT be speaking English.

June 6, 2018 “Peanuts” Cartoon Strip Honored D-Day Anniversary With “Snoopy” Swimming To Shore.

Aaaahh! That was so cute. It could be old, very old. It says, bottom right “6/6 Schulz” — but no year. I cannot remember seeing it before, BUT I could be wrong.

I guess Snoopy being so diminutive would have had to swim. As far as I recall, the MEN didn’t swim. That would have been impractical. But, I have seen images of them up to their chests in water.

Had to share this with you, in case you hadn’t seen it.

I always pause to reflect on this day. A Day that changed the course of history — of course, for the better.

Amazing that we don’t commemorate this day with more gusto, pomp and ceremony.

If NOT for the Allied heroics of this day we will NOT be speaking English.
