Food for thought:
Sadly very true.
British ingenuity at its best:
D Day – Operation Titanic: so named as they were unlikely to return
Aim: To divert German resources inland away from actual targets
A sucess like most other D Day diversions.
The intention was to simulate the dropping of an airborne division. Two SAS teams were also dropped near Saint-Lô. This group commanded by Captain Fowles and Lieutenant Poole landed at 00:20 on 6 June 1944, 10 minutes ahead of schedule. To deceive the Germans into thinking there was a large parachute landing in progress, the SAS teams played 30 minute pre-recorded sounds of men shouting and weapons fire including mortars.
00.00 (midnight, Double British Summer Time): Operation Titanic – part of Operation Fortitude – begins, designed to distract German anti-paratrooper units while the real landings take place.
RAF aircraft drop hundreds of dummy paratroopers across Seine-Maritime, Calvados, Manche. An SAS team parachutes in to the Cotentin peninsula and lands five miles west of Saint-Lô. Lieutenant Norman Poole becomes the first man to jump over Normandy. They install amplifiers to play combat noises, mortar explosions and the sound of soldiers cursing.

I’m going to add something from the other place:
Svali said on radio in Toronto in 2000, that this attempt to crash the economies was on the drawing board for 2020, by which time society was so demoralized [all societal building blocks corrupted and all faith fallen away], that the old families would take over and economies would run on SDRs from them, meted out to those being good boys and girls.
Brexit or no Brexit, this was on the drawing board. Chas becoming king is an interesting adjunct to this. The traitors to the people have been the ones running things all along. This was interpreted and misdirected as being lions led by donkeys. It was lions led by quislings more like and now there are very few lions remaining.
Into this also comes the Muslim factor. Two policeman at least have gone on record as saying this comes down from above, the way police are acting. Meanwhile, I can’t believe the obstinate lunacy of even bright people saying Tommy Robinson deserved it – it’s like the last supper on the Titanic and passengers are up in arms over his gracelessness at dinner over how the nuts were handed across.
Look at that old soldier in the picture – which is he closer to, Tommy Robinson or us keyboard warriors? Which of us are closer to the trenches?”
Just checked the BBC, Mail, Telegraph, Guardian, Independent, Breitbart and only the Express has anything on D Day. [H/T Andrea@eventuallyslim for the pic]
Tell me James, did you really expect any different? They’re ashamed of it you see. They hate to point out that it was the Allies and Russia that prevented German domination of Europe, and all its horrendous consequences. They want a Europe not only dominated by Germany but run by it.
They’re all traitors. No exceptions.
To all those who went across, Thank you, we cannot understand nor we will ever know the savagery, the horror, the individual courage and sheer bottle of those lads who so valiantly fought their way up those beaches in Normandy in 060644.
Though may God help me, I don’t like to say it, hate the very thought, when one looks and sees the damage now wrought on Europe not by Panzers and Storm troopers but by a tide of humanity which were not sought nor ever wanted.
I beseech, was that appalling and terrible sacrifice of those brave men US, UK, Allies – in the East the Russians too, was it a price worth paying?
I am a patriot and not a white flag conshie but as we see the Allied heroics duing the WWII campaign and its victory, have been squandered by a political class and administration who deliberately set to tear the walls down from within.
As I have been forced, by family problems, to be virtually silent for about a month-odd, I managed to post a small tribute to those brave men who walked, ran, stumbled, swam, flew, sailed and died on that fateful day in June; now so many years distant.
I too asked the question: “I do wonder what my Uncle, who died in Normandy; or my own Father, who served throughout those six-odd years: would think of what this Nation has actually become?”

Good tribute. Hope problems soon cured.
Asked mum (dob 1940) what she remembers. One was her “Siren suit and boots” – a green onesie & wellies beside her bed – to put on before going to shelter in garden.

Wrong thread? Other place?
Are you using some code speak?
No idea what connection is or where “Other place” is.
Er … you’ve confused me now.
“Other place” usually means Mr H’s blog NourishingObscurity.com yes? No?
