    Hopefully they can see it in the UK now.

    I wonder why the Germans didn't teach them to goose step?

    I thought I'd share these.
    A co-worker, whose father was present at this scene, explained these women were French collaborators who had been found out. In order to deter others, their heads were shaved in public. Not sure where this took place. French Collaborators 1a.jpg French Collaborators 2.jpg French Collaborators 2a.jpg French Collaborators 3.jpg

    In case anyone was wondering, this pic is supposed to be one of a Polish cavalryman attacking the German motormen in September 1939.

    First thing that catches my eye is the ship to the left has a quad 40mm mount on the #2 main battery turret, the one to the right had three 20mm oerlikons mounted atop it's #2 turret.
