D-DAY 66

D-Day 66
I delivered 7 more gift bags from the 6 WWII Museums of West Texas to the other 5 best D-Day museums in Normandy followed by a gift bag to IWM Duxford in Cambridge, England and the Assault Glider Trust at RAF Shawbury base at Shrewsbury, England.  I will post many photos and more information about D-Day 66 very soon.  I traveled to my favorite D-Day Museums in Normandy at D-Day 66.  Joe Hays accompanied me on this trip but was in a different Hertz rental car.  Below are some photos of my favorite museums in Normandy.--johnmc.


Mr. Ian Daglish and Mr. Kevin Baverstock

Note:  Very sadly, Ian Daglish passed away on Sunday, July 31st, 2011 from injuries received in a plane crash near Manchester, England.  Below is a link to a BBC new article about Ian's crash.  Ian was a friend and colleague in WWII studies.  He had published several books on battles in Normandy.  He will be missed by many.--johnmc.
