Allied invasion of Sicily 10 July 1943
Today marks the date of the Allied invasion of Sicily. After reading Whicker's War I put together a photo gallery mainly comprising of AFPU photos with a couple of colour American army photographs for the Daily Express. If this is your thing then you can see the gallery here.
As mentioned in a previous blog post my luggage has now officially gone missing, along with some of my cameras, lenses and camera chargers that were in my luggage. Hopefully I'll be up and running in the week but until then I'll be raising a glass to the brave souls who witnessed the Sicilian and Italian conflicts of World War 2.
