We are in the process of the final preparations for our journey to follow Dad’s path during WWII in 1944.
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.
A map of most of the route Grandpa took during WWII and Dad is taking this month (August 2016) across Europe. I created this to have a reason to test a Blog and possibly use as backgrounds..
