  1. Ken, Great picture. What I find interesting is how the floor is made so the soldiers doing the shoe fitting can stand while working rather than having to sit at weird angles. ...Kat
  2. Dennis, Looks great so far! Your talent is amazing! I love to watch your builds. I hope you stay safe and well...Kat
  3. Joe, I think some collectors forget that for many veterans their military service is just a few years of a very long life. They did so much before and after their service. My best to you, Kat
  4. Joe, I have never seen these badges. These are very interesting. You have some amazing items in your collection! ...Kat
  5. Rene, Great then and now picture. It is hard to tell if is the same spot. Sometimes urban renewal is not for the best. ...Kat
  6. I watched this movie over the weekend. Very good movie! I highly recommend! ...Kat
  7. Amazing grouping! Congrats! ...Kat
  8. Very nice. I like how the back of the half-track is raised in the air. ...Kat
  9. Rene, This would be so great to be able to walk around and listen to the history. Amazing stuff y'all are doing over there. ...Kat
  10. Very nice!! I really like how everyone is posed in the LCVP. ..Kat
  11. Joe, Thanks for the close-up of the order. I looked it up in my WAAC/WAC reference book. It looks like there was some confusion when they were converting to WAC. Some women were told they could go home when it was not correct. Some women thought they were in the Army only to find out later on that they did not move to the Army. If I am looking at this correctly, according to this reference number, she was sent home and did not enlist in the WACs. Do you have anything stating she went into the WAC? As I said, there was some confusion in the orders so she may have stayed in.
  12. Joe, One other note on the dates. Besides the date of July 7, it looks like there is also a date of Aug 19. I read that they had until the end of August to get a discharge from the WAAC. Could the date of July 7 be the date the order listed was effective and the date of Aug 19 is the date your WAAC became a WAC? I believe this is the case but am unsure if I am reading correctly from the pictures. ...Kat
  13. Phil, The WAACs became WACs on July 1, 1943. Since this is dated July 7, 1943, I believe this was her discharge from the WAACs so she could enlist as a WAC. ...Kat
  14. Johan, Great pictures! This one at the Pegasus bridge is my favorite! ...Kat
  15. Ken, You are not right! Hahahahahaha!! Great then and now pictures. ...Kat
  16. Just because they all have on the same uniform does not make it an official organization. Just because the hat and nothing else is similar does not make it military. While trying to research this, I found pictures of women working in various factory jobs with this same type of outfit including the hats. From 1914-1918, women worked in factories, railways, postal workers, firefighters, etc. I believe these women were working for some type of factory on the home front where they all wore the same business attire.
  17. These are not military uniforms. This looks like a group of civilian women working on the home front in some sort of business. ...Kat
  18. Johan, Amazing collection of bicycles! I am sure they are great for getting around busy streets. ....Kat
  19. Ken How do you also find different sites here in the U.S.?? You are amazing!!! ...Kat
  20. Great picture! I think Ken's house must be THE best place to have a party! ...Kat
  21. Ken, Great comparisons. It looks like such a nice street and farmhouse. It makes me wonder how many people drive this road every day with no clue the events that happened right in that spot. I also wonder if the lady who lived in that farmhouse when the roundabout was built also lived there when this picture was taken. ...Kat
  22. Johan, Thank you so very much for this great look thru the history of the D-Day events in Normandy. I really appreciate you taking the time to tell us about the events. It does sound like the earlier days before it became so big were the more enjoyable days. I didn't realize your love of bicycles came after your love of jeeps. I am sure you have made lots of great friends over the years. Thanks again for the trip down memory lane...Kat
  23. Ken, Amazing detective work on the picture of the pub. Are you sure you weren't Sherlock Holmes in a previous life? ...Kat
  24. Ken, Sorry for so many questions. No hurry! I just thought it might be something fun and interesting. I love your usual reports of the celebrations and missed them this year. ...Kat
