D-Day colour pictures

The following grabbed my eye today while reading one of the online newspaper sites...

Picture copyright Getty images/Life magazine etc.

...because it reminded me so much of this....

The difference of course is that the first picture is real (St. Lo I believe following Allied aerial bombardment) and the second picture was taken at Salute this year....

The first picture comes from a number of previously unreleased pictures on the Time Life website [clicky]

Well worth a visit!!


  1. Brilliant. Just shows how wargamers all under do the rubble though!
