I quite found these pictures by chance, while transferring some photographs from an iPad 4 to a Voyager Air 2 network drive. The photographs were taken with an iPad 4 at the Musee Memorial d'Omaha Beach on the Avenue de la Libération, St Laurent Sur Mer, Normandie, France, while on holiday last year. Anybody, who is anybody and has seen the opening sequence of Saving Private Ryan, which is regarded as having the most realistic opening sequences to any film , ever, must visit one of the many museums in this area of France.
Although aimed at tourists a lot of the memorabilia found in the museums bring home the reality of war and given the current standoff between NATO and Russia why we cannot afford another one. In total about 3881 American soldiers were killed, wounded or reported missing on 6th June 1944 at Omaha beach alone. I took a lot of photographs of the radios of the time, as we will eventually be hosting a series on Software Defined Radio (SDR) on this website.
