Re: today in history,



Artist: Joseph Lee Published: Evening Standard, Published 18 May 1944
I think that date must be wrong, as D-Day was called that, because it was the
4th day. The invasion was planned for 1st June, but delayed due to bad weather.



Artist: David Low (1891-1963) Published: Evening Standard, 13 Jun 1944




Caption, "Are you sure you locked the back gate?"

Artist: David Low (1891-1963) Published: Evening Standard, 09 Jun 1944




Artist: David Low (1891-1963) Published: Evening Standard, 08 Jun 1944




Artist: Jak [Raymond Jackson] Published: Evening Standard, 06 Jun 1964

No caption: 20 years later President de Gaulle is resisting the British entry into EU.
