Martin B-26 Marauder – Utah Beach Museum, Normandy, France. ——————————————————————— Despite receiving a reputation as a “Widowmaker” by its air crews due to its high accident rates during take-off & landing, the B-26 medium bomber was used extensively in the air war over Europe during the Second World War, including the D-Day campaign of 1944. Over 5000 were produced from 1941 to the end of the conflict, seeing service in the Pacific, Mediterranean & Western theatres of war. These photos from my 2014 Normandy tour feature the B-26G model “Dinah Might” painted in the colours of the 386th Bomb Group (9th USAAF) which is on display at the Utah Beach Museum, relocated from a display in Paris in 2010 to its new purpose built home. This particular aircraft did not take part in the Normandy invasions but is still one of only six original bombers left in existence. #lestweforget #lestweforget🌹 #ww2 #warhistory #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #dday #normandy #utahbeach #battlefield #aviation #aircraft #america #usairforce #instatag #instagram #instadaily #instagrammers #instagramhub #instahub #pictureoftheday #picoftheday #aviationdaily #aviationdaily #photography #photographer #photooftheday #instagramers #instapic

"🇯🇵 Japanese escort Shimushu" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - Japanese escort vessel 'Shimushu' (Shimushu class) off Port Hibi, Japan. June 1940. -------------------------------------------- Shimushu (占守) was lead ship of the Shimushu-class of which four escort ships of this class were built for the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. The main armament of the Shimushu class consisted of three Type 3 120 mm guns in single mounts, one superfiring pair aft and one mount forward of the superstructure. They were built with four Type 96 25 mm anti-aircraft guns in two twin-gun mounts, but the total was increased to 15 guns by August 1943. A dozen depth charges were stowed aboard initially, but this was doubled in May 1942 when their minesweeping gear was removed. The anti-submarine weaponry later rose to 60 depth charges with a Type 97 81 mm trench mortar and six depth charge throwers. -------------------------------------------- Shimushu participated in the landings in Thailand, escorting the 55th IJA Infantry Division to landings at Nakhon on December 8th 1941. She also escorted various other invasion convoys to Malaya, Sumatra, and Palembang. Using her sonar, she located the British battlecruiser HMS Repulse (1916) on January 29th 1942, being the first ship to locate the submerged wreck. -------------------------------------------- Shimushu participated in the HI-40 convoy disaster of February 19th-24th 1944, in which all six oilers that were escorted by her and only her, as she was the lone escort vessel. Nampo Maru were torpedoed and sunk by the American submarines USS Grayback (SA-208) and USS Jack (SA-259). After that convoy disaster, the Japanese Naval General staff discontinued assigning only one escort to convoys and organized larger convoys with more escorts. Shimushu participated in the TA No. 2 and 3, the Japanese effort to hold Leyte island, and claimed one of the five B-25 Mitchell medium bombers lost in the first wave. ⬇️⬇️ continued

🇫🇷 SAINT-BRIEUC, CÔTES-D'ARMOR, BRETAGNE, FRANCE - Two childhood friends meet during a demonstration. One is a striker, the other one, a policeman. Saint-Brieuc, France. On April 6, 1972 in Saint-Brieuc, the workers from the company Joint Français went on strike. The CRS (French riot police) moved in. Face to face, are Guy Burmieux, a worker, and Jean-Yvon Antignac, a riot policeman. Jacques Gourmelen, the photographer, was covering local news for the newspaper Ouest-France. “I took the photo on instinct. Burniaux had recognized his old friend and classmate,” said the photographer to his colleague Véronique Constance, on the 40th anniversary of this legendary strike. “I saw him go toward his friend and grab him by the collar. He wept with rage and told him, ‘Go ahead and hit me while you’re at it!’ The other one didn’t move a muscle.”
