Almost 1000 paratroopers from different countries jumped out of a plane last saturday in remembrance of Operation Market Garden.
25 Arnhem veterans watched this happening.
It's a yearly tradition and many countries send over some of their troops, including the UK.





It was all not far from my home and the skies above my house were constantly filled with massive planes, but also some historical ones like the DC-3 and a few Spitfires, etc.
All in all pretty epic.

...the most "exciting" anti-submarine kill in the Battle of the Atlantic

Additional reading. Trigger warning: Entirely apolitical servicemen of the apolitical German Wehrmacht of 1933-45 are referred to as "Nazi".

...the most "exciting" anti-submarine kill in the Battle of the Atlantic



The best part -

0329   BUCKLEY, alongside sub, gives hard right rudder, rides up on forecastle of sub and stays there.  Men begin swarming out of submarine and up on BUCKLEY's forecastle.  Machine gun, tommy gun, and rifle fire knocks off several.  Ammunition expended at this time included several general mess coffee cups which were on hand at ready gun station.  Two of the enemy were hit in the head with these.  Empty shell cases were also used by crew of 3" gun #2 to repel boarders.  3" guns could not bear.  BUCKLEY suffers only casualty of engagement when man bruises fist knocking one of enemy over the side.  Several men, apparently dead, could be seen hanging over the side of the sub's bridge at this time.  The boatswain's mate in charge of forward ammunition party kills a man, attempting to board, with .45 pistol.  Man falls back over side.  Midships repair party equipped with rifles mans life lines and picks off several men on deck of submarine.  Chief Fire Controlman uses Tommy gun from bridge with excellent results.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
