Landing Craft

Post  Gina_Costina on Sat Oct 01, 2011 9:11 pm

Just to wet your appetites..



A great day, and I must admit it was vey thought provoking when that ramp went up and we moved off.. I can only guess what GI's must have been thinking when the embarked on journeys in Landing craft.

I'll pick the best of the photos and post in due course..

Looks really great, well done all, shame I missed out but hopefully if we do it again I'll be there. BTW did it whet Pete's appetite for a new build Ben?

Not bad at all, Tony! It would look a bit better if it was Utah in the background though, not Omaha... Shocked Laughing

Cheers,

Can we also visit the sands of Iwo Jima and some other locations, please. We could do around the world in 80 days GI44-45 style!!

Like it, good effort!

Great stuff, probably the most talked about event of the year on the WW2 forum, no wonder ole Lee was trying to sneak in the back door!
