6.6.14

SEVENTY YEARS AGO

One Landing Ship, Tank, serves as a war memorial in Muskegon, Michigan.


We have her to tour today as she had a civilian career as the new-car transport, Highway 16.


The anti-aircraft weapon is probably a restoration, there were no pirates on Lake Michigan in those days.  (Pittsburgh came to County Stadium either on a train or flew Northwest.)


I sometimes fly the White Ensign to commemorate the Dunkirk evacuation.  The Royal Navy was instrumental as well in OVERLORD, and in maintaining operational security for the rehearsals.
