A lovely tribute, Frank.

a very fine tribute to this day!
I have just read a long article in our newspaper about the preparation of this D- Day in Devon - very sad.
Frank L Croston.: I read a novel about that once, it was at Slapton sands I believe. Very sad.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exercise_Tiger
It is hard to imagine how frightening making those landings must have been. We owe them a lot
Frank L Croston.: I cannot imagine, Bill, yes we do.

Good to rememebr with you image, Frank
Frank L Croston.: We owe a lot, Elisabeth.
very nice remembrance photo
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chantal.
I have a little display made up for d-Day with steel balls from the beach at Normandy.
Frank L Croston.: That sounds interesting, Mary, how did you get those?
A very fine tribute image Frank. I used to work with a man, older than me, who was on the landings who said the journey on the landing craft was almost as bad as the landing itself, most of the men were really ill from sea sickness.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, I've heard this, Brian, one chap said they couldn't wait to get off the boat, talk about the devil and the deep blue sea!
Beautifully stated with this simple & touching image, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Beverley, I'm glad you think so.

A fine tribute, Frank, A tragic loss of life - on both sides.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan, it is easy to forget that there were two sides to this.
Nice one. Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Tom.
