BLOODY OMAHA

Steve, a fellow gamer ,has been off on one of his annual jaunts. Trips which most of us war games have all promised ourselves. He has toured Normandy with a few friends, visiting the D-Day battlefields. He sent me  photographs  of his travels among them a picture of Omaha beach and  a couple which show the heavy price of freedom paid by so many young men.

Steve, the lucky bugger,has also travelled to the continent in the past few years to walk the Napoleonic battlefield of Waterloo and various First World War sites. 

One of these days, I like many of you hope to follow in his footsteps.
