John Kettler Posted June 6, 2016 Share Posted June 6, 2016 You would've thought the anniversary, from whatever year (72nd this time), of the June 6, 1944 D-Day landings in Normandy would've at least had a post here--on the CMBN Forum--but no! Let me correct that. I had no ancestor there on D-Day, but one in Patton's Navy detachment Boat Two landed there administratively on D+1 and had the grisly task of helping clean up the scene of so much butchery on the water side of things. He was a MoMM2 (Motorman's Mate, 2nd Class) on an LCM or "M" boat. Many of you will be familiar with the above, but I rather doubt you know this one. The description of the video says (Fair Use) The 'New York World Telegram' called it "the greatest recording yet to come out of the war." This was the amazing recording made by George Hicks, London Bureau Chief for the Blue Network (soon to become ABC) of the beginning of the D-Day Normandy Invasion. Added to the Library of Congress Audio Archive. Regards, John Kettler 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
