On D-Day, June 6, 1944, this flag flew from LCC 60 as it helped shepherd soldiers and equipment ashore. The edge of the flag is tattered and worn from the ocean winds from its use on D-Day and again in a later invasion of Southern France, Operation Dragoon. A circular hole found in the blue field is believed to have been made by an enemy machine gun bullet off Utah Beach. Swipe to take a closer look. Today, the flag has returned to the United States and is joining the museum’s collection. The flag is schedule to go on display at the museum Friday July 26.

SCATTI RUBATI DI UNA SPLENDIDA GIORNATA ALL’INSEGNA DELLA NOSTRA STORIA. In attesa delle fotografie ufficiali, qualche scatto “rubato” da chi era nel pubblico. Grazie ad amici e colleghi, oggi presenti. Grazie allo splendido team con cui sto condividendo questa stupenda avventura del Centro Studi del Paracadutismo Militare Italiano. Grazie a tutti coloro che stanno credendo in questo fantastico progetto. Grazie a chi, seppur non presente fisicamente, mi è stato ugualmente vicino. #storia #history #storici #historians #storiamilitare #militaryhistory #convegno #congress #centrostudi #paracadutismo #paracadutisti #paracadutistifolgore #paracadutista #paraca #brigatafolgore #brigataparacadutistifolgore #folgore #paracadutistifolgore #anzio #nettuno #shingle #1944 #storiaparacadutismo

"The Hungarian 🇭🇺 MÁVAG Héja" - (Part 10 = The remainder of the Re.2000 fighters are used for home defense purposes, building of more Héja II variant aircraft continues, and neutral countries & Finland request Hungarian-built aircraft) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - 🇭🇺 (MKHL) MÁVAG Héja II fighter aircraft parked at an airfield at Szolnok, Hungary, on April 13th, 1944. Note, the worn down 'look' of the aircraft and the minor damage sustained during combat against USAAF aircraft over Budepest, Hungary during the same month. — http://www.fortepan.hu/_photo/download/fortepan_15614.jpg Attribution: FOTO:FORTEPAN / Erky-Nagy Tibor -------------------------------------------- After the losses on the Eastern Front in early winter 1942, the surviving Hungarian Re.2000 fighters were kept in the Kingdom of Hungary for home air defence. Production of licence-built Hejas continued: (98) were completed in 1943 and (72) in 1944 although the Héja II variant was regarded as no longer suitable for combat against the latest Soviet fighters. Hungary requested that an additional 50 - 100 Re.2000 airframes be manufactured in Italy. -------------------------------------------- Suitable engines and armament could have been locally manufactured in Budepest, Hungary, additionally, other countries expressed interest in the Hungarian MÁVAG Héja II, including Finland (100 examples), Portugal (50), Spain, and Switzerland. However, no airframes were available by that time of the war and Hungary would be occupied by Wehrmacht troops in March 1944, and Hungary continued supporting Germany until February 1945, when Budepest, Hungary, was occupied by Soviet and Romanian soldiers after the siege of the city. — #The🇭🇺MÁVAGHéjafighteraircraft #AustriaHungary #Austria #Austrian #Hungary #Hungarian #Czechoslovakia #Vienna #Budapest #Prague #Monarchy #Empire #Habsburg #Magyar #Italy #SecondWorldWar #WorldWarII #WWII #WWIIHistory #AerialWarfare #Luftwaffe #FighterAircraft #EasternFront #Warfare #MilitaryHistory #History #HistoryBuff #Historian

Le fameux béret vert des fusiliers marins À l'origine, le 1er bataillon de fusiliers marins commando s'est illustré lors de la bataille de Normandie. Aujourd'hui les commandos marine combattent par tout temps, en tout lieu aux quatre coins du globe pour effectuer les missions les plus périlleuses. Cette force d'élite est probablement la plus prestigieuse et la plus exigente des forces armées françaises. . . . #france #nikonfr #nikonphotography #nikonlovers #nikond800 #sigmaglobalvision #sigmaphotofr #sigma35mm

I apologize for not posting anything for about a month. I'm rather busy these days. So enjoy this picture and I'll be back soon to post more! P-80A jet fighter in flight, 1946-1947. Source of picture: United States Air Force & World War 2 Database. The American work on the jet fighter, the first of which was the XP-80 project led by Clarence L. "Kelly" Johnson of Lockheed Corporation, began in mid-1943 after the discovery of the German progress in the same field. Just a small fact to give to you guys here. If you want more go to Google, Duck Duck Go or World War 2 Database to compare notes. #worldwar2 #worldwar2clubmemorandum #worldwar2history #militaryhistory #worldwar2aircraft #worldwar2historyandinstagram #staytunedformore #staytunedformorepics

Wehrmacht soldiers with accordion music and beer. The soldiers are probably celebrating victory over France in 1940 . . On the beer barrel is written "20.6.xxxx Frankreich" (the year is unreadable). The official French surrender came on June 25th 1940, but by June 20th Paris was already taken, and fighting was over in most of France . .

New suspenders for hiking. Canvas and brass “China Marine” cartridge belt suspenders for the Winchester M1895 Lee Navy rifle. Most notably used by U.S. Sailors & Marines when they were involved in quelling the Yihequan Movement’s uprising from November 2, 1899 - September 7, 1901. This event is know as the Boxer Rebellion here in the “West”. I don’t intend on creating a China Marine impression anytime soon, though it’s tempting. These suspenders are for getting out into the forest with a really light kit. They’re a really cool, very simple late 19th century design associated with a huge & complicated historical event. The midnight navy blue & brass contrast beautifully. I had to acquire a pair at some point. These reproduction suspenders were made by What Price Glory. The photos with the M1912 pistol belt are just for context & are not supposed to be historically accurate in anyway. . . . #militaria #reproduction #1800s #1890s #1900s #19thcentury #20thcentury #usmc #usnavy #fieldgear #suspenders #history #historicalclothing #hikinggear #hiking #bushcraft #boxerrebellion #imperialismisbad #china #chinesehistory #militaryhistory #ushistory *If anyone knows what book those reference photos are from please let me know.
