    Another year passed since Midway & D-day

    Today, 6 June 2017, makes 73 years since Operation Overlord (D-day).

    Sunday, 4 June 2017, makes 75 years since the Battle of Midway, the day when the Kaga & Soryu were sunk. Also when the Hornet's Torpedo 8 Squadron were all KIA, except one man.

    Monday, 5 June 2017, makes 75 years since Midway when the Hiryu & Akagi were sunk.

    Tomorrow, 7 June, 2017 makes 75 years since Midway when the USS Yorktown & Hammann were sunk.

    It can't be said enough: Freedom is not free & never forget those who purchased that freedom.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Absolutely right, we recently had a general election here in the UKicon, every time someone tells me the can't be bothered to vote ... "Whats the point syndrome" IT makes my bloody boil, I have to count to 10 and walk away!

    The problem here is most of the youngsters are so far removed from the great sacrifices of their grandparents (make that great grandparents) and education is so very woolly and liberal, it generally swerves the wars...
