    Bravo to them and all, as well as those who came afterwards.

  3. “SUNDAY, July 10/2022@07:28-FREE CZECHOSLOVAK AIR FORCE: DOBRE RANO, AND HELL YES; BRAVO ZULU COMRADES, AND THEN SOME…W.W.II/1939-1945, AND THE COURAGEOUS CZECHOSLOVAKIAN’S…Still stands thine ancient sacrifice, a humble and a contrite heart; Lord God of Hosts be with us yet, LEST WE FORGET, LEST WE FORGET!!!”

    Poem by Rudyard Kipling.

    “At the going down of the SUN, and in the MORNING; WE WILL REMEMBER THEM, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM!!!”

    “THEY DID THEIR PART; TO FREE OCCUPIED EUROPE, FROM NAZISM AND TYRANNY; and TO KEEP THE REST OF THE ALLIED WORLD, SAFE AND FREE…WE WILL REMEMBER THEM, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM!!!”

    “Thank you for my FREEDOMS, YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN; Love, AND Yours Aye: Brian CANUCK Murza, W.W.II NAVAL RESEARCHER-PUBLISHED AUTHOR, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.”
