Portsmouth 194-

Portsmouth Garrison Church, around the time Grandpa would have been coming through..  I just needed pic to post from my mobile to test but we could see when this church was bombed and obviously if it was bombed before 1944 then Grandpa is not in this picture..lol

This year we will be following Dad’s WWII route from when he landed in Glasgow [on 2 February 1944], to his crossing the English Channel to Normandy, on 25 June 1944, and then his journey through France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, and back into France. In October 1945 he sailed from England back to New York City on the Queen Elizabeth.
